Episcopal Collegiate Lower School
Little Rock, Arkansas
Episcopal Collegiate Schools
The latest addition to the privately funded Episcopal Collegiate Schools campus started during a shortage of raw materials. When steel prices skyrocketed, the original four-story structure was redesigned to a two-story facility just before construction was to begin. Due to the major scope changes and tight completion schedule, CDI literally began building the facility before the drawings were complete. This, in addition to the compressed construction schedule, allowed the 500-student capacity Lower School to be completed on time and under budget, with over $100,000 in savings returned to the owner. The Lower School, home to prekindergarten through fifth-grade classes, includes 24 classrooms, athletic facilities, art facilities and a 25,000 SF playground area.
