Ladd Elementary School


STRATA Architecture Inc. provided architectural design services to the Kansas City, Missouri School District for the $1.8 million renovation and addition to Ladd Elementary School. This historic building is equipped for continued service as a traditional elementary school for 400-500 students. Our 65,000 square foot renovation plans included ADA upgrades and a new five-stop elevator to allow this school to be accessible to the handicapped. A 3,000 square foot addition to the existing structure included historic elements in a design that is sympathetic to the existing historic structure, and at the same time provides up to date expanded classroom facilities to accommodate today’s teaching methods and technology.
