Original design-build in 2006: LCPL Nicholas S. Perez Elementary School is a 32-classroom campus for the Austin Independent School District. The campus classrooms are oriented around a central courtyard and library. The resultant exterior exposure allows for natural light to enter 98% of the classrooms. Sunshade devices on the south, east and west faces serving to diffuse direct sunlight. The design accounts for future growth of classroom space, additions to the school and site features. The Perez Campus Community enjoys the facility and has enhanced the campus with art and science projects, and community sponsored features including a courtyard pond and a nature trail to Onion Creek.
Lobby Renovation: In January 2017, GSC Architects designed a new lobby and supplied drywall crack solutions, giving recommendations, drawings and specifications to AISD and our original build partner Rogers O’Brien. Construction was scheduled on weekends and holidays to complete the new lobby and update the corridors without interrupting the regular school schedule.
