SEI is excited to announce the completion and approval of the Schematic Design Phase for the Oakdale Middle School Addition. SEI's team collaborated with Frederick County Public Schools to develop a schematic design that focuses on a one-story addition that aligns with the existing building and facilitates a collaborative 21st century learning environment. The addition continues the design philosophy of the existing school by arranging all learning spaces at the perimeter around a center support spine.
To integrate with the existing building, the design's footprint retains natural light and views by developing an outdoor learning environment dubbed the "art and science plaza." The plaza can be shared by the existing art program, new science classrooms and adjacent collaboration area.
