Visitation BVM School, a recent recipient of design services from the Collaborative, is a finalist in the This Place Matters competition sponsored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
One of a hundred finalists, Visitation BVM is competing for votes to win a grant of $25,000 to support its church, adjoining school, and community center. Visitation is the only organization in Philadelphia selected to compete.
Visitation BVM School has a diverse enrollment of almost 500 elementary and middle-school students. The Collaborative assisted the school in 2009, helping them develop a Request for Proposals to renovate space in the school as a new arts and sciences center. Visitation subsequently selected Claflen Associates, Architects and Planners for the project.
