Omaha Public Schools
Picotte Elementary

Project Location: Omaha, Nebraska

Completion Date: 1993

Cost: $3,492,757

Size:  64,500 sq. ft.    



Objectives of the Omaha Public Schools included designing an elementary school for 600 students that could easily be expanded to accommodate an additional 200 students. The school had to be highly energy efficient, have low maintenance characteristics, afford flexibility in use of spaces, and be designed so that eight classrooms could be added to the building in the future, depending upon demand. This addition was later completed. The media center was to serve as the core focal point of the facility and the administrative areas were to be centrally located for good administrative control. This plan eventually served as a prototype scheme for the district for four successive schools.
