Forest Middle School


Project Details

This project consists of a two-story addition to a circa 1994 middle school building for grades 6 through 8, along with a bus loop, parking lot expansion and landscaping and courtyard expansions. Cast-in place concrete and steel framing are used for the structural system. The exterior cladding consists of CMU, brick, stone, fiber cement and metal panel siding, and glass. A well field will provide heat exchange for water source heat pumps located throughout the building. All project lighting is LED. The project is located at 100 Ashwood Drive in Forest — and will increase the facility’s square footage by more than 60 percent to 162,000 square feet and would renovate existing parts of the school. The project will allow the school to accommodate about 1,200 students. The school currently has about 950 students enrolled and is about 100 students over capacity, according to division officials.
