Beavercreek K-8 Campus
Client: Beavercreek City Schools
Location: Beavercreek, Ohio
  • New 350,000sf K-8 school.
  • 700-student Trebein Elementary School on the same 50-acre site as the 1,150-student Jacob Coy Middle School while maintaining separate identities.
  • Enclosed courtyard designed for outdoor learning zones for art, theatre, science, reading and play.
  • Classrooms feature operable glass walls allowing for team teaching.
Interesting Fact: The highly efficient mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems do double duty as teaching tools, with exhibit rooms for HVAC equipment, informational graphics throughout the schools and even cut-away wall sections to show first-hand how the buildings make the best use of the district’s financial resources.
Awards: Cincinnati Design Awards - Merit Award, Built Work

Though they were originally envisioned on two campuses, Beavercreek’s Trebein Elementary and Coy Middle remain on the same 50-acre site. However, they operate as two separate buildings, creating grade-level appropriate communities. The shared site includes an enclosed courtyard designed for outdoor learning zones and dedicated spaces to allow maximum flexibility.

"Colocated on the same site, the buildings were conjoined to maximize construction, operational, and educational efficiencies - turning a "negative" into a "positive" on several fronts. The exterior material palette was selected to reflect the district's long history of success, while demonstrating a future-focussed footing."
