The Doane Stuart School

The Doane Stuart School selected an abandoned public school building as their new home and embarked on its transformation into a handsome, inspirational facility to service its unique education mission.

The original building was constructed in the 1930’s and has a distinct art-deco design.  A substantial addition was constructed in the mid 1990’s.

The project converted the building for occupancy by the Doane Stuart School.  Quantum Engineering Co., provided all related plumbing, HVAC, electric, lighting, and fire protection engineering design and construction phase services.  One of the great transformations was the modification of the original 1930’s gymnasium into its new use as an interfaith chapel and meeting hall.

More recently the Doane Stuart School pursued and completed the installation of a “Green Roof” to reduce stormwater runoff and reduce energy costs.
