Wolf Ranch & Williams Elementary Schools – Georgetown Texas- Case Study

Each school has a total of 41 single panel and 19 paired panel Moderco Crystal Acoustic Glass moveable walls. The owners and design team wanted to create as much access to natural light as possible for students and staff as well as maintaining acoustic privacy between teaching areas. More glass – more light creating a bright and airy environment for all occupants. At the same time there was a need for larger gathering areas for collaborative events: open up the space. The perfect solution was the Moderco Crystal panel system which, when stacked, provided maximum flexibility. The walls also had to be useful for teaching purposes so “special” glass writing surfaces were created (see below).

Other

 All classroom paired panels systems have a factory installed special white finish on inside of each glass face at marker board height (24” AFF & 48” high). This allows the instructors to “write” on the glass surface with special markers and then easily erase. Instructors love the concept. Easy to write on, excellent visuals and no markings left after erasing.
All single panel corridor partitions have a “special non-see-through” film applied on the corridor side of each panel. This prevents the students from being distracted by any corridor activity. Excellent acoustic qualities provided by wall system.
