Chartered in 2001, the Latin American Montessori Bilingual (LAMB) Public Charter School is a unique dual-language Montessori public school. For this project Forrester performed a phased renovation of the historic Military Road School, formerly the only school for African-Americans in Northwest DC, to accommodate the LAMB School.
The first phase of construction involved the complete demolition, renovation and modernization of the nearly 100 year old 15,000 SF building. The completed interior contains offices, multi-purpose rooms and classrooms equipped with individual restrooms. For the second phase of work, Forrester created a new 20,000 SF three-story addition. It includes classrooms, administrative spaces, a full service cafeteria and a green roof.
