Vanguard Classical School K-12

By looking at Vanguard Classical School’s East Campus today, one would never know the structure was formally an industrial building manufacturing hats. The original two-story building was plagued with mold, asbestos, leaking walls and without as-built drawings. From needing to expand areas to meet code, fitting in an elevator for ADA requirements and changing the roof structure due to the change in occupancy, this design-build project was accomplished in merely five months. With extensive work, the adapted building is now a healthy and modern 112,000-sf k-12 school to accommodate Vanguard Classical School’s growing enrollment.

“AP was immediately responsive to help us. They brought in many trades to walk the building to ensure they were informing us what was going to be needed to complete the remodel. We were impressed with the process of selecting systems and sub contractors as they listened to what we wanted and matched it to our needs and desires for the school. AP has gone above and beyond in the pre construction process to ensure the school will meet the needs of the students and has continued that level of quality as we continue through construction.”
