Lafayette Elementary School Project

Lafayette Elementary School

Project Overview

Lafayette Elementary School located at 5701 Broad Branch Road NW is scheduled for total modernization by FY 2016.

The school currently holds 700 students in approximately 113,600 sq-ft of open-space floor layouts. The modernization will aim to increase the overall area to 145,000 sq-ft to accommodate a capacity of 835 students.

The modernization will require construction of swing space to accommodate students and staff during the construction process as it is assumed that the existing 1970's wing will be demolished to make room for a new addition.

The Department of General Services (DGS) and DC Public Schools (DCPS) will begin engaging residents in the Spring of 2014 on the design of the school based on the Education Specifications.

This project is Part of a $3.2 billion, 10-year DCPS School Modernization Program started in 2007. A full modernization approach is expected to increase th building from 96,000 sq-ft to 120,000 sq-ft to accomdate up to 835 students.
