Waukee Maple Grove Elementary

Waukee, Iowa

Maple Grove Elementary was built to accommodate rapid growth in the Waukee School District. Three classroom pods surround a central circulation core, minimizing the distance students need to travel to access shared program spaces such as the media center, computer labs, guidance, and music classrooms. The exterior façade is comprised of masonry and architectural precast, providing both durability and aesthetic value. To expedite the construction schedule the interior of the building is primarily metal stud walls with drywall. A continuous translucent panel clerestory window provides diffuse natural light all along the central core corridors.
