Health and Safety at the Forefront
RSGC has undertaken a comprehensive facility preparedness master-plan to prepare the College for the return to school in September in order to best enhance the health and safety of students and staff. We have had a busy summer re-visioning the campus to prepare for the boys’ return. Our return to school facility master plan has been 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 into our return to 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.
