Sherwood Acres Elementary School

Albany, GA

Originally built in 1959, this elementary school was badly in need of an upgrade. SRJ planned and executed a complex renovation of the school with a new two-story classroom wing, new physical education building, media center and administration area. The renovations were completed in phases while the school was fully occupied.

The result was a more welcoming, flexible and attractive school; essentially a brand new, state-of-the-art learning facility, for a fraction of the expenditure of building from the ground up.

Peach County Elementary Schools

Ft. Valley, GA & Byron, GA

These two new 92,278 square foot elementary schools were designed for the Peach County School System. Each of the new schools services 867 students. The new sites include a physical education facility, media center, kitchen and cafeteria, administration areas, art and music suites, computer and special education classrooms, and K-5 classrooms.

Classrooms were designed larger than state-mandated size, allowing additional space to incorporate computers into each classroom without taking away instructional space. Every classroom is equipped with the latest technology, including interactive white boards.

Jerger Elementary School

Thomasville, GA

Completed spring of 2009, the renovations and modifications of the existing elementary school include a new 21,000 square foot addition. The addition was designed to fit into the historic fabric of the neighborhood in Thomasville. A new parent pick-up canopy was designed to give the existing building a new identity in keeping with the addition.

The new building includes a new main entrance with administration area and 12 classrooms. Classrooms are for third, fourth and fifth grade. Every classroom is equipped with the latest technology, including interactive white boards.


Academic facilities present the architect with a unique challenge. 

Structures built for education must be extremely flexible due to the multiplicity of uses they require and the ever-changing nature of the profession. 

While they must be adaptable to changing technology, they must be inviting, accommodating and conducive to learning. In addition, they must be durable and designed for a long life span.

And almost always, these goals must be met on a limited budget. SRJ’s decades of experience in this challenging field enable us to deliver our clients exceptional facilities that fulfill their goals ... within their budget.
