Liberty Center PK-12 school includes many of our featured vendors’ products displayed in open space natural light. A variety of Stevens Industries Casework is installed throughout the new building. Designers took a vibrant approach with various finishes, including White Cypress, a sleek white wood-grain laminate highlighted against Marmalade, an orange laminate backsplash in the Middle School Art Room complete with Slimline Oil Rubbed Bronze Pulls. Additional notable finishes include the traditional Kensington Maple backed with Orange Creek Key in Elementary Rooms. A vibrant atmosphere with little to no additional cost for the end customer. Additional Stevens Casework includes the reception desk and music/vocal storage units. ICI Scientific’s Wood Science Lab Casework in Heritage Maple is in 7 science labs throughout the building in a traditional design.
The Media Center includes products from both Stevens Industries (Circulation Desk) and Brodart Contract Furniture. Brodart’s Omega Shelving in Oak is complemented with Stevens White Cypress circulation desk, mobile units and administrative areas.

In effort to keep the feel of the previous school’s “Little Theater,” an auditeria was designed – merging both the auditorium for performances and gatherings with the school’s cafeteria. Hussey Seating Company’s MaxamPlus Telescoping Platform with Metro Chairs was installed for both comfort and versatility. Complete with carpet decking and auto-rotating aisle rails, the design is sleek and accommodating bringing back “Little Theater” feel.
Six ceiling-suspended Performance Sports Systems Basketball Backstops were installed along with a Top Roll Divider Curtain and Scholastic Volleyball System. For operation, a Total System Control Keypad was installed allowing all equipment to be managed via one central keypad.
