Holy Comforter Episcopal School STEM Classroom Building
Ajax was proud to be a part of the addition of the new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) Building to Holy Comforter Episcopal School’s Campus. The new building gave HCES the opportunity to expand their Middle School Program by offering a range of 21st Century thinking skills as they prepare for high school and beyond. The demands of the workforce have changed in the constantly evolving information age and we need to ensure that students develop the creative, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills needed to participate successfully, not to mention new digital literacies that will be essential to success in the future. The new classroom building consists of 12,385 SF for STEM studies and was constructed while school remained open and operational without disruption to the students’ studies. In addition, stringent safety and security measures were taken to ensure the safety of the students, administration and visitors to the campus. The building was designed and constructed to incorporate LEED principles (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and other environmental best management practices. In addition, many of the structural, electrical, and mechanical components of the project were left exposed to be used as teaching tools for student learning.
