The Avery Coonley School was built in 1929 and is listed on the Register of Historic Buildings. ICI began a working relationship with ACS upon being hired for the construction of a three-story expansion. The 15,000 square foot addition accommodates French and mathematics classrooms, science and computer labs within the first phase of construction. During subsequent phases of the renovation, the 80-year old structure received a new kindergarten and additional classrooms. Last, the library’s original historical character was restored.
After the successful completion of this project, ICI was retained for the following ten summers for master plan / life safety updates including (but not limited to) masonry, window and millwork restoration, abatement, painting, carpentry and roofing repairs and lighting upgrades.
In ICI’s most recent project with ACS, ICI completely renovated their Lower School. The Lower School is the oldest part of the building and the full scope included replacement and up-sizing of electrical systems, installation of a air conditioning system, new lighting and sprinkler and electrical upgrades. Each learning space was rejuvenated with new paint, carpeting, furniture and technology. Additionally, the existing interlocking octagonal learning “cubes” housed within the space that over time had become one of the hallmarks of Avery Coonley were disassembled, removed and replaced by new, custom-built learning “cubes”.
