Loring Elementary School

An Updated, Welcoming, Flexible and Safe Environment

Loring Elementary School, originally built in 1928 and spanning 61,000 square feet, serves kindergarten through fifth grade students. The district’s vision aimed to modernize this school into a welcoming, flexible, and safe environment centered around students and community values. Collaborating with the district, the LHB team designed major renovations including a secure entrance and administration wing, a new elevator for accessibility, a complete kitchen overhaul, mechanical and plumbing systems upgrades, and electrical/technology infrastructure replacement to achieve this vision.
