Project: DC Infrastructure Academy
Client: DC Department of General Services
An unused elementary school is transformed into a healthy learning environment for adult vocational education. Classrooms + office space accommodate DC Infrastructure Academy programs that provide infrastructure jobs counseling + training. The ISTUDIO-JP2 team reconfigured spaces and upgraded existing building systems to meet current building standards. Partitions with vibrant graphics and industrial materials create spaces in the Great Hall for security, orientation, and counseling. Classrooms are finished with durable materials and the latest technology for jobs training in utility fields. The team worked closely with the Department of Employment Services on the Phase 1 design, permit, and build on a fast track that met deadlines for the mayor’s initiative.
