Description

Completed for Washington County School District in August of 2015, this beautiful middle school building replaces an aging facility that had exceeded its useful life. The compact 3-story plan made room for increased on-site green space and the re-configuration of an adjacent high school baseball complex. The smaller footprint also allowed for construction to proceed without interruption to the current school‘s academic and extra-curricular program offerings. Comprised largely of load-bearing tilt-up concrete wall panels, load bearing concrete masonry  and steel frame, the building’s upper levels are skinned in lightweight metal panels that highlight the red earth colors of the lower floor’s concrete and masonry skin.
