Daly City, CA
Bayshore Elementary School is a modern K-8 learning environment that embodies 21st Century learning at the highest level.
The project incorporates 52,500 square feet of classroom, administration and multipurpose area on an existing site that covers approximately 2.3 acres in downtown Daly City. The design of the educational environments is indicative of the best 21st Century learning concepts, including shared “makers” and STEAM spaces for interactive learning and socialization, and a learning resource area that functions as a social space as much as it does a student library. Each of the classroom areas includes interactive, touch-sensitive projection devices, movable furnishings, wireless technology and a combination of tackable and writable surfaces.
High Performance was also a significant consideration in the design. The project features skylights for natural daylighting of the upper story. The project utilizes extensive LED lighting, high efficiency HVAC systems, as well measures for enhanced commissioning that should result in great comfort and control.
