Health and Safety at the Forefront
At the start of the pandemic, RSGC undertook a comprehensive facility preparedness master-plan in order to best enhance the health and safety of students and staff. The facility master plan was guided by Tye Farrow.
Tye is the architect behind our Ketchum Hall and Junior School renovations. More importantly, Tye has vast expertise and knowledge in helping some of the world’s leading hospitals improve their campuses to changing healthcare needs. Under Tye’s direction, GPY+ Engineering, who have an excellent knowledge of our mechanical systems on campus, was engaged to undertake a comprehensive analysis of the facility and provide recommendations on on how to reduce airborne and direct contact disease. We have incorporated these recommendations school facility master plan.
The enhancements to the campus include imaginative use of bigger spaces to maintain optimum physical distancing, mechanical system upgrades, traffic patterns and circulation considerations, entry and exit protocols, segregation of Junior, Middle, Lower High School and Senior High School into discrete “schools within the school” and strategies for student and adult compliance with health and safety upgrades.
