Oscar DePriest Elementary School
bKL provided a variety of interior and exterior renovations for Oscar DePriest Elementary School. These included classroom, auditorium, library, dining, corridor and toilet room renovations, as well as the remodeling of exterior entrance access routes.
In addition to aesthetic improvements, provisions were made for air conditioning and wireless access points in compliance with the CPS mission to enhance technology and provide climate controlled learning environments.
bKL completed this fast-track project that was critical to ensuring welcoming environments for Chicago Public Schools students upon the start of the school year. Along with Kellman Corporate Community Elementary School and Leif Ericson Elementary Scholastic Academy, all three projects had the same schedules, with design and construction occurring within a limited time frame of 10 total weeks.
