Wilbur and McMahon School

DBVW Architects worked with a school building committee in Little Compton, RI to develop general improvements to an existing K-8 school including addressing emergency repairs, code compliance, and other immediate health and life safety concerns. Located on the historic Town Common, the existing 58,000 square foot school building was constructed in 1929 and was in need of significant upgrades. A historic library within the building, which had been divided into multiple classrooms, was restored and overall building circulation was greatly improved. In addition to new finishes and furnishings, upgrades included new fire alarms, sprinklers, mechanical, electrical, heating and ventilation systems. The building envelope was also improved to eliminate leaks and ensure a healthy and inspirational learning environment for all students.
