Rocketship Spark Academy

Owner: Rocketship Education
Architect: Artik Art & Architecture

Serving 425 students grades TK-5, Rocketship Spark Academy was built by Enviroplex in partnership with Artik Art & Architecture and Launchpad Development Company

Project Overview

The two story building is a 130×80 back-to-back design with a three sided wraparound exterior corridor. The interior spaces are comprised of administration and dedicated staff offices, classrooms for traditional curriculum, boy’s and girl’s and staff multi-fixture restrooms, custodial room, and IDF data space.

Innovation is always a core value for Rocketship Education, which encourages new ideas from not only staff and students but also from its design professionals. The flexibility of Enviroplex’s modular design allowed Rocketship Education to fulfill its vision of a collaborative teaching and learning environment. Guided by Rocketship Education’s mission, Enviroplex created optimal learning spaces where students at various performance levels work together in groups toward a common goal: every child succeeding.

From Our Clients

“It is so great to see all of our children back at school. I really did miss them over the summer! And it is an extra special treat that our children are now in classrooms that are much more conducive for learning. The favorite comment from the children is, ‘the bathrooms are so clean and there’s green handles for the flushers.’ You have to love children’s expressions; I smile all day long.”

Kathleen Brewster

Albert Schweitzer Elem. School

“The Evergreen School District has used Enviroplex buildings for over ten years. We have purchased over 150 classrooms, bathrooms, and library buildings in various configurations. The newer configurations with pitched metal roofs, stucco-like finish, thicker installation, and internal HVAC units have been well received by our teachers and community. We also appreciate Enviroplex’s commitment to deliver the buildings on time for our accelerated eight-week summer construction schedule. During the last two years we have purchased 39 units, and they were all received during the one week window we gave Enviroplex.”

James Crawford

Evergreen School District

“Our students and teachers are truly enjoying and appreciating your classrooms. Enviroplex delivered this project as promised, on time, per specification and with minimal change orders. I realize how difficult this can be on a multi-million dollar project. We are entirely satisfied with the feel and sound quality of your concrete paneled floor system. I have heard zero complaints from our “1st Floor Teachers”. Thank you again for a very favorable construction experience.”

Roy Miller

Emery Unified School District

“We are thrilled with the result of our beautiful renovation. We now have 5 new classrooms to replace our ‘1962’ portables and trailer. It has been exhilarating to watch the weekly progress this summer. Our landscaping, classroom and parking lot makeover has greatly improved our community school.”
