A New Build for a New Generation

At Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools, administrators needed to design a new elementary school for the first time in 25 years, replacing the out-of-date, undersized Lincoln Elementary School with a new build to accommodate 750 students.

Commitment to Community

Triad provided preliminary budget and bond campaign assistance for the project. We were also the architect/design/engineering team for the building. We knew at the outset that purposeful community engagement would be the key to success on this project.

With that in mind, we designed a custom stakeholder engagement process that included every student at Lincoln Elementary, all staff members, and at-large community members interested in the project. We incorporated their input and feedback directly into our design process—essentially making them our co-designers.

The passion and commitment the people of Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools brought to this process made it possible for us to build an innovative, inspired community asset that we all can be proud of.

We selected Triad, because we felt like we would get innovative designs. All of the other architects we had talked to offered out-of-the-box, cookie-cutter designs. We wanted something special for our district. Triad also offered unique solutions to save us time and money.
