BVH was brought in due to our extensive expertise in the broad needs of PK-12 design. The expanded campus will house core junior/senior high classrooms, a performance gymnasium, a CTE suite with Vocational Agriculture and STEM focus areas, new administrative offices, and a fitness center that has community access. The addition is being designed to allow the existing media center, special education and other general education classrooms to be shared between primary and secondary education areas while keeping the younger and older student zones distinct.
The site presents challenges for the design team. A steep slope and existing geothermal well field limit the area in which the building can economically be sited. Traffic flow and site access is limited due to neighboring houses and a church. The BVH/Hausmann design-build team is working diligently to create a cost effective solution which maximizes the new school amenities while minimizing the costs spent on site grading and utilities.
