News—————4 May 2018

Arlington Public Schools celebrated their move to the new Syphax Education Center last night May 3rd with an Open House and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Throughout the past three months APS departments have relocated to the new centralized headquarters at 2110 Washington Blvd. Studio Twenty Seven Architecture designed the 80,000 SF project at Syphax that consolidated dispersed administration departments.

APS’s vision for consolidation necessitated phased occupancy and a clear-cut deadline. In the words of APS, “The new APS central office allows the school division to better serve the needs of the community by easily allowing them to complete their business needs at one location. The goal of consolidating all central office departments in one location is to allow APS staff to work together to provide the best public education for every child that lives in Arlington.”

Congratulations to APS and our diligent team on this project. We are happy to see Syphax come to life!
