W. Smith, Jr. Elementary School


W. Smith, Jr. Elementary School (Violet, LA) was a rebuild on an existing school site that was affected by Hurricane Katrina. Along with another St. Bernard Parish School, it was the first new construction municipal building in Louisiana post-Katrina. Designed to be more hurricane resistant, the project was designed and built in 15 months and used materials such as Glazed CMU and Terrazzo. An 87,000 s.f elementary school, the project was a necessary piece of public infrastructure to help bring back the community.
