Carden Traditional (Calibre Academy)
[ Surprise, Arizona ]

Carden Traditional School, now Calibre Academy, was an expansion of an existing school.  This expansion doubles the school’s capacity, adds a gymnasium, a cafeteria, and athletic fields.  This school family had existed with no recreation facilities on their own.  These new amenities are expected to help greatly with student recruitment and retention.  This project had a very aggressive budget and so even though much of the circulation is exterior to save square footage, canopies were provided to shade those areas.

The new cafeteria will bridge the gap between the existing south (or primary) campus, and the new north (or secondary) campus.

The overall site design triples the available parking and parent drop off space.
