Pontotoc, Mississippi New Construction Size: SF Construction Cost: $3.5MCompleted: 2017
Millcreek of Pontotoc, a residential treatment facility located in North Mississippi had, for years, been using modular homes for classrooms. They had long wished for more permanent and better equipped classrooms to inspire their growing student population. Their new, pre-engineered metal buildings perfectly balance affordability and creative design.
Each building features a bright colored canopy that articulates the height of the interior. Tall ceilings and plentiful windows bring in natural light and state-of-the-art classrooms have direct access to the outdoors. Included also is an administrative office and a wood working shop. Corridors are aligned so that the two separate classroom buildings can be connected to add more classrooms to meet growing demand.

Important in this storm-prone area, media rooms in each of the two classroom buildings serve the dual purpose of storm shelters, something that could never have occurred in the former modular buildings.
