ADG recently designed a new science and art building on the Casady School campus. The New Science and Art Building replaces the Vose Science Building and Woods Mathematics Building in the upper division quadrant of campus.
The new 22,000-square-foot building is designed to remain consistent with the aesthetics of the W.R. Johnston Math Building and rest of the campus. Brick and cast stone exteriors complement the residential feel of the campus. The new building utilizes geothermal energy that uses water from Casady Lake as a source of energy, reducing the size of the mechanical units and increasing energy-efficiency. Casady School is committed to sustainability and being good stewards of the environment.
Special features include light monitors and natural lighting in the art classrooms. A learning commons with spaces for group study and collaboration utilizes a variety of flexible seating. The learning commons integrates student lockers, study spaces and a student lounge. The science rooms contain both lecture and lab spaces. Casady has a strong science and art curriculum.
ADG has worked with faculty and administration at Casady School over the years on multiple projects beginning with a campus master plan and including the renovation of the 16,000-square-foot Lower Division building and a new Activity Center for the lower division.
