Hatch Elementary School Kindergarten Building
Three new kindergarten buildings were constructed on the Hatch Elementary School Campus in preparation for the 2021 school year. The new 9,200 square foot space, including outdoor play and learning environments, was delivered using the Folia design and construction solution created by Blach Construction and designed in partnership with Quattrocchi Kwok Architects and GPLA Structural Engineers. The intention is for the design to be efficient, flexible, and prefabricated such that it can be quickly constructed on any K-12 campus while also being adaptable to the particular site. It was designed to meet the building standards of the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) using high performing materials and systems, with an emphasis on natural daylighting, acoustic performance, and indoor air quality which support a healthier learning space. Folia is DSA pre-check approved. This tri-plex was completed within eight months and well within budget due to the prefabricated nature of the systems and components.
