Edison Elementary School is a replacement school for the Salt Lake City School District on the west side of downtown. The design of Edison is such that the existing students of Edison are able to attend school and use fields even during construction. The expanded playfields and parking were completed the summer of 2019 prior to the start of school. This two story school plan provides natural daylight to all educational spaces including the group collaboration spaces centrally located on both of the levels. The plan allows for the district to control access to the classroom area of the building to allow for the public to take advantage of the gym space after hours or on weekends. The secure entry and the classroom lockdown control doors provide a secure and safe environment for learning. The simple economical form of the building provided a cost effective solution for the Salt Lake City School District’s latest replacement school; proving to be approximately 15% less expensive at bid day than the District’s other recently bid replacement elementary school.
