Sunbeam, designed by Van Auken Akins Architects LLC (VAA), will be a 92,394 sq. ft. elementary/middle school in Cleveland, Ohio. Upon completion, the new school building will house approximately 515 students in grades PreK-8.

This includes incorporating 21st Century learning elements such as flexible and dynamic classrooms and learning spaces. The school is being designed to achieve LEED Silver certification and will be built in accordance with the Ohio School Design Manual. VAA will integrate BIM throughout all stages of the project, from conceptualization through completed construction.
