MODA Architecture Awarded OCMAPS Project
Oklahoma City – MODA Architecture has been awarded the architectural design for an addition and renovation to Monroe Elementary School in Oklahoma City.
The project was awarded by the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area Public Schools Trust and is part of the city’s OCMAPS program. Originally built in 1950, the school will accommodate 437 students when renovations are completed.
“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with the OCMAPS Trust and to work with the educa- tors at Monroe,” said Omar Khoury, LEED® AP, AIA, MODA project manager. “We take a lot of pride on these projects. When we visited the school, it was evident that these teachers love their students and want to create an environment that will help them learn. It is exciting to be a part of that.”
The project will expand classroom space with an addition of over 6,700 square feet to the existing school. The new space will make room for ad- ditional classrooms and restrooms. Renovation work will focus on all classrooms, administration offices, health clinic, and the food service area. There will also be repair and modernization to several areas including ceilings and floors.
“This school has a long history in our com- munity and we are excited to get the project started,” said Chong Branson, AIA, MODA design architect.
