PINECREST, Fla.—Moss Construction recently announced it has completed the new Day School at Temple Beth Am in Pinecrest.

Designed by Perkins Eastman Architects, D.P.C, the 80,747-square-foot expansion project has a total of 62 classrooms for Pre-K through Grade 5, and includes an Innovation lab, STEM lab, media center, state-of-the-art creative art studio, and an outdoor early learning space. Moss worked hand in hand with Amicon, who is the owner’s representative, to deliver the new school building for the 2021-2022 school year.

“We are honored that Temple Beth Am chose Moss to complete this two-phase expansion project, which will provide students with an optimal environment for learning. The project team and partners worked diligently throughout 2020 to ensure that the Day School was ready for the start of the 2021 school year,” said Moss Senior Vice President/Project Executive, Ed Baro.

In July Moss began demolition of three buildings and courtyard area to prepare the site for the Welcome Center, which is part of Phase 2. The Temple’s Welcome Center includes an indoor basketball court, auditorium, meetings rooms, pool and cafe. Once the Welcome Center and courtyard are complete, this central area will unite the new school building with the administrative and Temple thus completing the Temple’s expansion project.
