The new Olathe Elementary School on Clinton Street was the first of a new prototype. The district abandoned their typical elementary design for a newer, fresher style. The result was a school design that was anything but typical. For a school district that emphasizes standardization throughout all their buildings this presented a challenge to all involved. By working in conjunction with the district’s personnel throughout the design, BGR Consulting Engineers was able to incorporate the district’s standardized HVAC, electrical & plumbing systems within this 65,000 sq.ft. building.
