PJ Dick managed construction of an addition and renovation to the Falk School at the University of Pittsburgh. The project was designed to bring the facility up to code, provide for modern instructional space, and increase the school’s capacity from 275 students to 440 students. An extension of the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Education, the Falk School is a private K-8 laboratory whose primary mission is the education of its students and furthering the broader development of future educators and the learning processes they employ. The project included a 38,000 sf addition for classrooms, a gymnasium and library along with a 25,000 sf of renovations to existing classrooms, gymnasium and administration places. Sustainable features include a green roof, an air exchange system, low-flow toilets, solar-dependent lighting, and the use of recycled materials.
