  Potomac Elementary School



Keller provided CM At-Risk services on the construction of a new 87,000 SF replacement elementary school on the existing school site. A seven-classroom addition was master-planned in the project and included as shell space.  The new facility provides approximately 32 classrooms and 21 support and core facility areas.  Adaptable classrooms provide flexibility for varied-size groups of students, presentation formats, and access to alternative media and resources. The building is oriented on the southwest side of the Site with the identifiable main entrance of the building facing River Road. The administrative suite is located at the front of the building to allow supervision of the main entrance, lobby, and student drop-off loop. Secondary entrances are located by the bus loop and student drop-off. The academic areas are organized around a large courtyard space to maximize natural light into the classrooms and promote an efficient interior circulation system. The kindergarten and first grade classrooms are located on the ground floor level for security and safety reasons. The remainder of the classrooms for grades two through five are located on the second-floor. Stairways are located at each end of the building with a centrally located stair in the lobby, along with an elevator provide vertical circulation within the building. The core support spaces of the building, consisting of the multi-purpose room, gymnasium, and media center, meet the standards of the elementary school program and are designed to support community use by grouping the spaces together on the main floor of the building with controlled access. Secondary entrances with a canopy provide a sheltered entry from the bus loop, and student drop-off.
