Winton er Spring Grove Village er Northside Montessori Plans

Winton Montessori will be moving to Northside on the site where Schwab is now located, 4370 Beech Hill Ave. Demolition on Schwab will begin September of 2010. Currently, they are trying to remove and reuse as much from that location as they can. Construction is slated to begin at the end of this year, following demolition. School is slated to open at the new location in September, 2012.
The architects are: Cole+Russell, Fanning/Howey, Moody Nolan.
Plans include:
  • Separate parking and drop-off for Pre-K.
  • Garden beds for Student Garden
  • Landscaping with Native Plants
  • Increased capacity from current location: 6 Classrooms for Pre-K/K, capacity for 650
  • Dedicated art room
  • auditorium, gym, cafeteria & music room
  • The Goal is to achieve Silver Leed Certification.
  • 90% usage of materials in construction - very low waste produced.
  • Higher ratio of sunlight in classrooms
  • - Additional funding is possibly coming from Duke Energy for Chilled Beam heating and cooling.

This post would be, I guess, what the folks at the Arkham Beacon would call, a media release. It's not the kind of thing I usually write about but the guy over here, apparently, did a runner.
