Design of this Catholic high school involved a flexible approach allowing for phase-based construction. The initial construction includes 6000 square foot of classroom and related ancillary space, gymnasium, activity center and other support related spaces. Future classroom, library, administration and other spaces are planned as additions to the central core area of the original building.

 

 

 

 

Two of the initial four classrooms are designed as flexible space capable of being opened, by use of a folding operable partition,

to create one large

gathering space.

To economize the cost

of original construction, a pre-engineered metal building was utilized as the primary structural system, with some timber framed shorter span spaces added to create dynamic elevations around the entire perimeter of the building.

 

 

Horizontal metal with mitered corners was used, intermixed with vertical metal and split-face concrete block. A stepped parapet wall conceals the pitch of the metal building beyond and provides a signature profile for this college preparatory high school.
