John M. Clayton Elementary School Renovations

Construction Management
Public K-12

John M. Clayton Elementary School was the former Indian River High School built in 1932. After the construction of the new Indian River High School in 2005, this building was used as a swing space for students from other schools scheduled for renovations. This approach to a multiple project master plan allowed renovations to occur in the other schools without them being occupied.

The renovation of this 102,000 SF building consisted of a new geothermal mechanical system, electrical upgrade, fire suppression and alarm system, computer wiring, and a new clock system. The interior architectural upgrades included new ceiling systems, flooring, drywall partitions, painting, two new stair towers, and an elevator. The exterior façade renovations – while still maintaining the architectural integrity of the 1932 building – included masonry repointing, painting, joint caulking, replacement of window lintels, and roofing. All exterior landings, stairways, and restrooms were upgraded to meet ADA requirements, and a new connector was added between two existing building wings.
