Mill Creek Elementary School
LGA is fortunate to be working again with Knox County Schools on another transformative project. Located in the rapidly-growing Hardin Valley/Karns area, the new Northwest Sector Elementary School will help to ease student capacity issues at both Hardin Valley and Karns Elementary Schools. The new 125,000 SF, 1,200 student school is located on a beautiful greenfield site.
The design is based on other recent Knox County Schools projects – the classrooms are arranged in linear wings with shared spaces located at the confluence of the classroom wings. The “H” lay-out allows for simple interior visual monitoring of the school and allows portions of the building to be locked off during after-hour events. The school also includes an ICC-500 compliant tornado shelter, one of the first in Knox County.
