Project Description

Eagle Academy PCS at McGogney is a full renovation and addition to a former DCPS school.
The 87,000 sf project accommodates 770 students. The new building exterior is composed
primarily of polycarbonate multiwall sheets, creating a lantern effect and neighborhood icon.

PHASE A: Fast-tracked renovation of a 1965 era, 60,000 SF public elementary school
including a complete retrofit of plumbing, mechanical, and electrical systems. Project also
included removal and replacement of all windows and new partitions for administrative/
office spaces, special education spaces, and early education programs.

PHASE 1B/C: The second stage consists of a new 21,000 SF addition to existing renovated
and occupied school building. Addition houses a gym, pool, locker rooms, library, computer
center and administrative offices. Also included in this phase is the creation of approximately
6,000 SF of finished classroom space below existing elevated building. The project is
pursuing LEED® for Schools Silver Certification.
