O'Donnell & Naccarato provided structural design services for 5 buildings that comprise Episcopal Academy’s new private school campus, including the school’s 900-seat chapel, which serves as the focal point for the campus.

The lower school, upper school/science center, campus center and athletic center are each 2-story, steel framed structures. The upper school contains 4 middle school labs, a greenhouse, 4 upper school earth science and biology labs, 2 chemistry and 2 physics labs with associated prep rooms. The campus center includes a 600-seat, column-free auditorium featuring a full fly loft and balcony seating. The athletic center houses a competition swimming pool, gymnasium, and squash courts. Each building on campus has its own distinct architectural flavor, while maintaining a cohesive style throughout the campus.
