The Hockaday School – Science Building Renovation and Expansion
GFF Architects is pleased to announce the start of construction on Phase One of the Hockaday School Centennial Center. This phase of the project includes a total renovation of the existing two-story science building, the addition of a third floor of teaching spaces and the creation of the Lyda Hill STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) Institute. Middle- and upper school science labs will be reorganized by discipline, with chemistry on the first floor, physics on the second and biology on the third, to take advantage of a new green roof teaching space. A new three-story atrium with a Foucault pendulum will provide visual and physical communication between floors, as well as an interdisciplinary connection between science and the adjacent Fine Arts facility.
