Beach Elementary School

Calvert County Public Schools : Chesapeake Beach, MD

An integral part of the Town of Chesapeake Beach, Beach Elementary School (BES) is a 65-year-old school located on a narrow parcel off Bayside Road (Route 261). The new, 67,500-SF, $28.6M replacement school will be located on the same parcel. Because of challenging site constraints, the owner and project team realized “building up” – designing a new, 3-story building – was the way to go, costing less than modernizing the existing building, and keeping BES within the town limits. JPA is supplying MEP/FP engineering design and construction services for this project where the existing school will remain operational throughout design and construction.
