Standby power system for the renovation of Pimlico Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore, Maryland

Pimlico ES/MS includes the full renovation and modernization of 78,000sf of existing building as well as a 40,000sf addition. The original 1910 school building will be rebuilt to support the elementary component of the project while the 1924 building will house the middle school. The goal of this project is to maintain the existing historic buildings to the extent feasible while using new additions to unify the site and create a 21st century learning environment for the students at Pimlico ES/MS. The existing 1924 gymnasium, while not large enough to support middle school athletics, will be repurposed into a high-volume media center with open ceilings and high windows. The existing activities core will be renovated to provide a modernized dining room with natural lighting and an expanded kitchen to meet the needs of the school. New community space and a gymnasium will be added to this wing of the building to serve the school as well as the surrounding community.
