Madison County Schools

Madison County, VA

From pre-K to second grade, the primary school is home to over 600 students in the earliest stages of their education.  The scope of work was limited to providing a Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment (FFE) package for the entirety of the primary school and select classrooms in the high school.

The FFE process on this project was unique in that our designers collaborated with individual teachers and office administrators to establish their specific needs. Through this exercise, the furniture matches the school’s progressive way of thinking and teaching.

Within each pod of classrooms, a central lounge area offers a versatile teaching environment for multi-classroom collaboration. The teacher’s desks are mobile as well as feature ergonomic, height-adjustable solutions. In both the high school and primary school, the student desks are modular to allow for adaptability for each teacher’s teaching style.

At the heart of the school, the library highlights a variety of furniture solutions—desks, sit-and-store combinations, lounge furniture, and fun hexagonal ottomans to sit on.

The FFE package provided custom, economical solutions for each and every space in the schools. Every specified piece of furniture not only provides cleanable, wipeable surfaces, but also brightens the spaces with their light and neutral color palette.

Within the administrative offices, the expansive reception desk sits in front of maximized lockable storage, and the conference room comfortably sits ten. The cafeteria furniture easily breaks down and nests out-of-the-way, making room for presentations from the stage.

This project was by all means a partnership with the Madison County School Board, Madison County Public Schools, Grimm+Parker Architects, and Skanska USA.
