Crocker Elementary School

Amherst, MA

Crocker Farm Elementary was overcrowded and well-worn after 45 years of heavy use. Margo Jones, Architects designed additions at both ends of the building to liven up its factory-like structure. Warm materials, daylighting and bursts of color support the vibrant learning community of this valued neighborhood school. Dramatic energy savings were achieved through envelope upgrades, daylighting, and energy efficient mechanical system retrofits.
