The school will remain an occupied site during the duration of the project, requiring multi-stage phasing of the work. Site work includes demolition removal of existing hardscape, extension of new utilities, a new paved bus drop and parking areas, storm systems, and grading to support the new footprint.
A portion of the existing building is being demolished, and a majority of the remaining building is to be remodeled. The addition includes a new 2-story south classroom wing, new administration, commons, auditorium, new CTE/STEM classrooms, a new 2-story science and classroom addition.
Addition areas include classrooms and a wrestling room. HVAC systems will include a combination of rooftop air handing units for large volume spaces and new VRF (variable refrigerant flow) units for heating and cooling. LED fixtures are proposed for lighting. The roofing is a SBS Modified Bitumen membrane will be specified for the roofing.
