MSA worked with Madeira City Schools on the conversion of the 45 year old Perin Media Center into a new, dynamic Learning Commons. The Learning Commons has become the hub of campus through the creation of a “€œstate-of-the-art”€ 21st century learning environment. This was achieved by developing a variety of spaces for collaboration, socialization, and large-group functions coupled with state of the art connectivity and a robust technology network. An under-utilized courtyard was transformed into an exterior entrance and Outdoor Classroom space which serves as an after-hours entrance for the Commons. The project involved installation of a new geothermal HVAC system, and state-of-the-art electronics and technology systems.
