NCSD Floyd Elementary School
Nye County Opens New Elementary School, Southwest Contractor, November, 2008
This single-story elementary school located on 12 acres was designed in wings to be able to provide multiple, outdoor, sheltered courtyard spaces for children to play and learn. The school is flexible, functional and energy efficient. Child friendly spaces were created with vibrant and fun colors to enhance the experience and also provide way finding queues for the young students. The school includes classrooms, administrative spaces, computer labs, media center, multipurpose room/cafeteria, library, music room and nurses station. The building is oriented on the east/west access to minimize solar gain. The design was fast tracked and completed in 6 months. This school will hold up to a maximum of 700 students.
