Hillcrest Elementary School / Marvin B. Smith Elementary School

These 96,000 square foot ‘twin’ schools were built for the Burlington City School System in the early 1990’s.  The designs were ‘T’-shaped, with classrooms and support spaces on each of three wings, separated by grade level and color coordinated.  The center core contains administrative space, cafeteria, gymnasium and library.  Smith Elementary has a predominantly steel frame structure.  Hillcrest is masonry bearing.  Both schools have standing seam metal roofs over metal decking and bar joist framing.  Capacity of each school is approximately 720 students.
