Platt/Whitelaw was retained to modernize the old Kroc Middle School—and transform it into the new Creative, Performing and Media Arts School (CPMA). Modernization included classrooms; kitchen upgrade; new black box theater; exterior repaint; windows; entry landscape and irrigation redesign; security fencing; storm/sewers update; restroom updates; fire, life safety, and accessibility updates; technology, lighting and HVAC updates. The new 21,500 sf PAC facility is designed for music, dance, multi-media performances and rehearsals, within an acoustically-abated shell which resists noise intrusion from MCAS Miramar.
