Upper Arlington Professional Development
  • April 4, 2014

Upper Arlington Schools selects Legat Kingscott to design professional development space.

To increase space for students and create a more efficient organization, Upper Arlington Schools has tasked Legat Kingscott with designing a cost-effective and adaptable workspace for staff and professional development inside its new maintenance facility at 2020 Builders Place, Columbus, Ohio.

“This is an important project for our district,” said Upper Arlington Schools Executive Director of Business Services Chris Potts. “When you’re working with older facilities and conservative budgeting, space is at a premium. This facility will allow us to create an efficient workflow for our staff and make sure that school space can be used as it was intended – for students.”

The district was able to purchase the facility with revenue generated by the sale of its operations facility in Grandview Heights, Ohio last spring. The Builders Place location includes the bonus of 10,000 square feet of office space. This spring Legat Kingscott will begin design work to create a flexible space that can be used to free up school space for students.

A four-year relationship between Upper Arlington Schools and Legat Kingscott includes several interior renovations such as the “Bear Essentials” store at Upper Arlington High School and the replacement of the synthetic turf field at Marv Moorehead Memorial Stadium.
