The Faison School — Autism Center of Virginia
The 3-story, 38,000 square-foot building required a complete interior renovation, since it was a cast-in-place concrete structure with insulated metal panels, brick and pre-cast concrete cladding. The space was designed and constructed to include small classrooms, inside play areas, administrative spaces, and special education rooms. New interior finishes enhance the architect’s design by using color and floor textures, interesting wall configurations, millwork and ceiling designs. A new 3-stop elevator was installed, as well as new plumbing, security and telecommunications systems.
A drop-off, visitor parking and handicap access enhance the front entrance of the building, and private outdoor teaching patios and play areas complete the exterior modifications.
