DESIGN CHALLENGE: Create a distinctive school facility encompassing 250,000 square feet of space that provides a welcoming environment, offers an efficient design with lots of natural lighting, and opens on time.

To ensure the facility met its schedule, designers specified an all-precast concrete structural system with architectural precast panels faced with inset brick. To meet both structural and architectural objectives, each exposed concrete element consists of two pieces, joined back to back. They are stacked and connected to elements above and below with steel pins. The design team softened the feel of the building and called attention to the main entrance with a segmented curve featuring lots of glass.
