Integrate Construction Partners Converts Lake St. Louis Office Building into Temporary Campus for Lafayette Academy
Integrate Construction Partners (Integrate) has transformed an office building in Lake St. Louis, MO into a larger, temporary location for growing private school Lafayette Academy. The project was completed in time to start the 2023-24 school year.
Lafayette Academy, formerly known as Classical Academy de Lafayette, is a private K-12 school in St. Charles County founded in 2016 by longtime educator Katy McKinney and dedicated to classical education.
The 16,800-square-foot converted Lake St. Louis office building at 20 Hawk Ridge Circle will serve as the school’s temporary campus until land can be purchased for a permanent school to be built.
Integrate started the office building’s transformation in July 2023. The interior build-out included new classrooms, an exercise room, multi-purpose room, conference rooms, and a staff break room.
The project also included construction of an outside storm shelter per IBC code to ensure the safety of the students and staff during inclement weather. Integrate assisted with the design, procurement and accelerated installation of prefabricated storm shelters and a pavilion to meet operational requirements for the new school year.
