Proposed School Building The proposed new intermediate school has been designed to meet present and future educatiwial needs, and to serve the adjacent residential area in its political, social and recreational activities. The classrooms are self-con¬ tained and are provided with care¬ fully considered, properly supplied ventilation and artificial light. The walls are painted block scored to resemble 8" x 8" tile with a tile base. The windows have marble .window stools. Floors are vinyl asbestos, exposed acoustical roof deck and beams, fluorescent light¬ ing. Teachers' wardrobe storage cabinets, and generous amounts of vinyl surfaced tackboard and met¬ allic chalkt>oard serve the class¬ room function. An unusul feature of a "picture window" provides one-third less glass area, aids in controlling nat¬ ural light, "frames" the observers view of the outside, and lowers initial as well as maintenance cost. Placed in ^^tenvenient location, the administ^fl^e suite has uick access far control, f<H- service to th^ acadym|»e—vjihigj oil ona^eide,- and the multi-purpose activity and service zone TTie buildi^ eral classrooms; one industrial arts; one science room; one draw¬ ing room; locker rooms, a xntdtl- purpose room which is furnished witii cafeteria tables and benches that fold compactly into recessed pockets in perimeter walls to keep the room flexible for other activ¬ ities such as i^ysical educaticHi, music and various civic functions. Kitchen, storage and utility rooms adjoin this facility. Heat is furnished by a hot water boiler, with a split system bring^ing tempered fresh air into all areas, and circulating hot water through baseboard fins or unit ventilators. A tliorough study wbich lead to the selection of materials and euipment was made to assure the CMnmunity of low maintenance costs and practical, flexible oper¬ ation of tiie building. The exterior features face brick walls; aluminum windows, doors and cornice; brick feature pon¬ els, and asphalt and gravel roof designed to give a maximum guarantee of 20 years. The interior features vitreous enamel finish on corridor and toilet room walsl for protection and ease of cleaning. Terrazzi* is used for toilet room floors for durability and ease of mainten¬ ance.
