    Project Overview

    The Eliot-Hine campus located at 1830 Constitution Ave NE, consists of four adjoining buildings totaling approximately 158,000 square feet of space. The original building was constructed in 1931, with additions constructed in 1936 and 1961. Although the buildings are adjoining, the 1961 additions present misaligned levels, is significantly oversized for the current/projected student body and proves several operational challenges.  

    The project seeks to create a right-sized unified building that has true community presence in the Capitol Hill area. The 1961 buildings will be demolished, and in its place, a new addition that will better connect the campus with ADA accessibility will be constructed. The other buildings will be renovated and restored to its historic nature, bringing its unique character to the forefront.  

    During the modernization, students will have a phased swing plan. The school will first be relocated to the 1931 and 1936 portions of the building to allow for demolition of the 1961 additions.  The following year, students will swing into the onsite modular trailers. The modernized facility will be home to approximately 480 students. The building will meet or exceed sustainability guidelines for LEED - Gold Certification and be an asset to the neighborhood.
