Project Summary

The high school, which contains grades kindergarten through twelve, was constructed using a concreate and structural steel frame on a pre-cast concrete and timber piles foundation.

This project achieved Silver Certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design from the U.S. Green Building Council for the implementation of state-of-the art electrical and emergency systems in addition to sustainable green energy systems.
