Heards Ferry Elementary is the next generation of the new, multi-story elementary school prototypes designed for the Fulton County Board of Education. This prototype was developed to specifically address the limited availability of large land parcels within the county. The compact plan organization offers the same programmatic spaces and site amenities found in other Fulton County Elementary School prototypes but within the constraints of a smaller footprint. The simple linear organization makes the layout of the school less confusing to young children and provides good visual observation for administration and staff. Concurrently, the organization of the school is designed to introduce natural light within the corridors and within each classroom. The exterior material selections include brick veneer, metal and cast stone trim providing excellent long-term durability against the effects of weather while offering the community a building that is low in maintenance and timeless in design.
