The Naylor Wentworth Lund Architects design team worked closely with the Ogden City School District early on, to plan and provide options for replacement of the T. O. Smith Elementary School. This very tight site was a challenging one. The NWL team worked closely with the District to provide the best possible solution to the challenges of construction with school in session and students on-site in the old building. Ultimately, the district decided to move the students off -site, although staying on site was an option with a possible phased construction schedule. Community meetings were held at key points during the design process to ensure the new school is responsive to the needs of the community. The new T. O. Smith Elementary School incorporates modern security features, enhanced technology and provides a learning environment that supports social and emotional growth of the students.
