Maria Hastings Elementary School was originally built in 1955, and was a single-level school. Its new building has 3 stories and was constructed 15 feet away from the existing school - which had remained occupied throughout construction and opened in time for the start of the 2020-2021 school year.

Porcelanosa’s porcelain ventilated facades are designed to ensure maximum energy savings and noise reduction. The open- joint cladding, continuous insulation, and thermally broken support system significantly improve the building's thermal envelope, thus helping the building retain more heat in cold months, and keep cooler in warm months. In addition to the façade’s eco-friendly benefits, the new school building also features solar panels on its roof and geothermal walls.
