DMR Architects Designs Science Labs for Ridgefield Board of Education
DMR Assists District Pass $2.9 million Referendum for Improvements
DMR Architects, a leading full-service architectural firm dedicated to progressive, innovative, sustainable and high-quality design, is progressing with the design for science lab upgrades at two schools for the Ridgefield Board of Education in Ridgefield, N.J.
On September 24, voters in Ridgefield passed a $2.9 million referendum, 516 to 281, to fund the upgrades. DMR provided pre-referendum services to assist the district and supporters in passing the referendum.
The project includes renovations to four existing science labs at Ridgefield Memorial High School and Slocum Skewes Middle School. The renovations provide much-needed upgrades to aging labs. The new science labs will provide students in grades 3-8 with new lab tables, which include sinks, outlets and gas jets, ceiling vents, energy efficient lights, improved storage space and SMART boards, among other improvements. The project will be completed by September 2013.
“DMR is excited that we were able to not only help the Ridgefield Board of Education pass such an important referendum, but also provide our professional architectural services for the project. This project will greatly improve the science education for students at these two schools,” said Lloyd A. Rosenberg, AIA, President and CEO.
DMR previously provided professional services for several science lab projects, including renovations and new construction projects for Lyndhurst, Carlstadt, Hasbrouck Heights and Northern Valley Regional districts.
