Pinecrest preparatory school
New structure seamlessly blends with surrounding neighborhood
The age-old problem of aesthetic sensibility versus economic feasibility often brings building projects to a halt. In this case FINFROCK designed a garage which conformed to the aesthetic requirements of the Pinecrest Preparatory School’s desire to blend a new parking garage into the existing campus as well as the surrounding neighborhood, do it cost effectively, and with an aggressive construction schedule. To accomplish this FINFROCK went back to the basics, mixing straightforward spandrel construction with wall panels. The addition of simple Bahama type shutters to cover window openings gives the building a South Florida appeal while keeping within budget.
FINFROCK served as architect of record, structural engineer, design-build contractor, and parking consultant for Pinecrest.
