iDS was hired by the Maryville R-II School District to assist them with the design of a significant addition to Eugene Field Elementary School. In addition to the design, iDS spearheaded the successful bond campaign which was approved by the voters in April of 2014.
At Eugene Field Elementary, a new kitchen and commons space for the children doubles the seating capacity at each lunch period. This increase in capacity reduces the amount of lunch shifts needed, allowing the student to eat meals at more opportune times. The glass wall construction of the commons floods the area with natural light which will re-energize the students before returning to class.
The kitchen provides improved traffic flow from the original kitchen. All new appliances and refrigeration gives the food service employees the long lasting tools they need to prepare the daily meals.
This project was completed in the Summer of 2016.
