In this article, we will elaborate on the collaboration between Hanson and McKenna John J Architect in the commissioning of the remarkable Picolata Crossing Elementary School project.

Introduction to Hanson's Vision

Hanson, a renowned organization in the construction industry, approached McKenna John J Architect with a vision to create a state-of-the-art educational facility: Picolata Crossing Elementary School. This project aimed to provide the St. Johns County School District with a modern, functional, and aesthetically pleasing learning environment.

The Collaborative Process

The collaboration between Hanson and McKenna John J Architect began with a comprehensive analysis of the site, budget discussions, and design consultations. Our team of architects worked closely with Hanson to understand their requirements and translate their vision into a tangible blueprint.

To optimize the functionality of the school building, our team conducted an in-depth study of educational facility design principles. We considered various factors such as classroom layout, natural lighting, acoustics, and energy efficiency.

Design Innovation and Sustainability

McKenna John J Architect's focus on innovation and sustainability was key in creating a unique design for Picolata Crossing Elementary School. Our team incorporated advanced architectural techniques and environmentally friendly materials throughout the construction process.

The school features large windows to maximize natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting during daylight hours. Additionally, energy-saving fixtures and insulation mitigate the environmental impact while decreasing operational costs for the school.

Functional Spaces Tailored for Learning

Picolata Crossing Elementary School boasts thoughtfully designed spaces that cater to the diverse needs of students and staff. The classrooms are furnished with ergonomic furniture to promote comfort and productivity. Each classroom is equipped with cutting-edge technology for interactive and immersive learning experiences.

Common areas, such as the library and cafeteria, were strategically positioned to foster collaboration and social interaction. Outdoor spaces include playgrounds, sports fields, and gardens, encouraging physical activity and a connection with nature.

Construction and Execution

Once the design phase was completed, McKenna John J Architect took charge of the construction process. Our team of experienced engineers and construction workers ensured that the project adhered to the highest industry standards. With a focus on safety and quality, we completed each construction milestone on time and within budget.

Quality Control and Compliance

Rigorous quality control measures were implemented throughout the construction of Picolata Crossing Elementary School. Our team conducted regular inspections to ensure compliance with building codes, safety regulations, and design specifications. This meticulous attention to detail guarantees a safe, functional, and long-lasting educational facility.

Celebrating Success

The completion of Picolata Crossing Elementary School was marked by a celebratory event, attended by representatives from Hanson, St. Johns County School District, and McKenna John J Architect. This grand opening symbolized the successful collaboration between the entities involved and the realization of Hanson's vision for an exceptional educational space.


The partnership between Hanson and McKenna John J Architect in the commissioning of Picolata Crossing Elementary School exemplifies our commitment to delivering unparalleled architectural designs in the heavy industry and engineering sector.
