Master Facilities Plan
In 2012, the EAC School Administration and the Board of Trustees adopted a long term Master Facilities Plan with a feasible project sequence that is responsive to 21st century teaching and learning. The plan provides a framework to guide feasible short term (1-5 years), medium term (6-10 years), and long term (11-15 years) improvements of EAC’s campus. The Master Facilities Plan provides a “road map” to guide the growth and improvement of the campus in an effort to support EAC’s four pillars: Academics, Athletics, Arts, and Global Citizenship.
After a rigorous tendering process, Truex Collins Architecture and Interior Design was selected to lead the process to create EAC’s Master Facilities Plan. Based in the state of Vermont in the United States, Truex Collins has worked with several K-12 schools and universities all over the world. This firm focuses on creating learning environments where design is driven by the energy of people engaged in teaching, learning and social interaction.
A team of Truex Collins architects visited EAC and conducted a series of design workshops for the EAC community. During each visit, architects met with administrators, faculty, board members, parents, maintenance staff, and students to develop an understanding of campus design challenges and solutions to address these challenges. The Truex Collins Team developed a series of design principles unique to EAC. Based on these design principles, they created a model of the campus with all existing spaces and new programming spaces. The process of creating this model led to an inclusive and engaging process characterized by rich conversations that informed the development of EAC’s Master Facilities Plan.
