Project Details

Schemmer was selected by Omaha Public Schools to design a new replacement school for Columbian Elementary School. The work included a complete replacement of the existing school. The original building was replaced with a new 450-student capacity school on the existing site. This recommendation was based on an analysis of the condition of the original building and input from community members, district staff, education and facility planning professionals and the OPS Board of Education.


It was such a fun and amazing experience working with Schemmer while designing the NEW Columbian Elementary! Their professionalism, communication and creativity exceeded our expectations. Customer service is definitely one of their greatest strengths. The staff, students, parents and I always looked forward to our meetings together. Thank you, Schemmer!!
