Founded in 1869 by the great-great granddaughter of Benjamin Franklin, the Agnes Irwin School is an all-girl, non-sectarian day school for pre-K to12th grade students.
There were four new construction components in the campus master plan’s most recent implementation phase: a campus entrance, main entrance reception area, athletic center, and dining and student center. LEED Silver certification is anticipated.
The 55,000 square foot athletic center houses a gymnasium, four squash courts with viewing area, a crew tank and rowing machines, fitness center, training room, locker rooms with showers, team meeting space, equipment storage, and multi-purpose space for physical education classes. The dining and student center supports a variety of functions in addition to dining, from formal large-scale meetings to spontaneous small gatherings.
BBA provided full MEP and fire protection services for the $27 million project. Improvements included updating the boiler system, a new chilled water plant with provision for additional capacity and upgrading the main electrical service. LEED Silver certification is anticipated.
