Five Arts and Student Center
St. Timothy's School: Stevenson, MD
St. Timothy’s School is a private boarding and day school for girls in grades 9 -12. This recently completed $11.7M project included renovation and expansion of the former 18,800-GSF two-story Hannah More Art Center. Renamed the “Five Arts and Student Center”, the resulting 28,225-GSF building was expanded to three stories and houses the school’s literature, theatre, dance, visual arts and music programs. Other notable project improvements included a fully refurbished 320-seat theater, full-service Health and Wellness Center, additional classroom space for the English Department, and an expanded 1,000-GSF Art Gallery. The courtyard located between the Five Arts & Student Center and the existing dining facility was redesigned with new ornamental trees, benches, pavers, and site lighting. New MEP systems and site infrastructure were provided to accommodate the renovation and expansion. Sprinkler coverage was added throughout, with a new site water service supporting the added sprinkler system components. JPA worked directly for St. Timothy’s School during construction to functional test and commission the new MEP systems.
