CPS Pullman Elementary School

Nov 7, 2022

Accel was assigned with the CPS Pullman Elementary school project, which involved 4 main job tasks. The first task involved converting the skylight shaft into an elevator shaft, to ultimately install the elevator. The second task focused on upgrading MEPs (the Fire Alarm systems) to modern standards, ensuring optimal functionality and safety throughout the facility. The HVAC, plumbing, and electrical were modified to accommodate the installation of the elevator. The project also included extensive exterior masonry renovation, as well as the installation of new windows & shades for the entire school. Additionally, a Pre-K room was fully redone as an option that was accepted. The project’s notable challenge was the design and installation of an elevator in a skylight shaft which required a seamless blend of accessibility and architectural solutions.
