This $36.7 million project involved a renovation and addition to an existing middle school. The existing 112,000 SF facility was renovated to accommodate an additional 1,250 students. Multiple additions were designed to include a 27,000 SF, multi-story media center as well as additions to the cafeteria, administrative space, and classrooms. Multiple mechanical systems needed to be operational during the phased construction, which required close coordination with the owner and contractor to identify any possible temporary overloading of the structure.
Alpha provided structural engineering design including review of original as-built construction drawings; analysis and evaluation of the existing conditions for renovation requirement and compliance with current building codes; and determining necessary structural updates to support the renovation and construction. Alpha provided complete design and construction documents, shop drawing review, and responded to contractor requests for information.
