• Meridian High School Renovation and Addition Projects from 2012-2017

    Phase 1 Central Plant

    New central plant mechanical building was built to house head end mechanical and electrical equipment that serves the classroom building. Work included updated primary power feeds to the central plant, classroom, auditorium and agriculture buildings. New mechanical equipment includes a new cooling tower, boilers, pumps and hydronic specialty equipment. 

    Phase 2 Classroom Renovation and Swing Space

    This phase includes nine classrooms, two earth science classrooms, two biology classrooms, collaborative learning centers, restrooms, prep and special services room, offices, mechanical rooms and the central computer room. The corridors include open to structure design with large skylights and light wells to carry natural light to the first floor. Unit skylights also provide natural light to some of the second-floor classrooms. 

    This area also includes the main utility room, which houses the main electrical switchboard, fire sprinkler riser, domestic water and head end equipment for fire alarm, lighting controls and direct digital controls for the HVAC system. This phase of the project included renovation of alternative “swing space” classrooms in the career and technical education buildings needed to displace students during construction. 

    Phase 3A Classroom Renovation

    This phase includes six resource classrooms and supporting areas, five classrooms, mechanical, information technology and electrical rooms, and new restrooms. The corridors include open to structure design with large skylights and light wells to carry natural light to the first floor. Unit skylights also provide natural light to some of the second-floor classrooms.  

    Phase 2B Annex Classroom Building  

    This phase included new construction of an 8-classroom building including classrooms, art rooms, restrooms, and a mechanical, electrical and information technology room. The corridors include open to structure design. 

    Phase 3B Classroom Renovation

    This phase included 13 classrooms, a computer lab, collaborative learning center, new restrooms and mechanical, electrical and information technology rooms. The corridors include open to structure design with large skylights and light wells to carry natural light to the first floor. Unit skylights also provide natural light to some of the second-floor classrooms.  

    Phase 4 Classroom Renovation

    This phase included nine classrooms, business and computer classrooms, two earth science classrooms, one biology room, and one biology-chemistry flex lab. Also included are collaborative learning centers, prep room, new restrooms, and mechanical, electrical and information technology rooms. The corridors include open to structure design with large skylights and light wells to carry natural light to the first floor. Unit skylights also provide natural light to some of the second-floor classrooms.  

    Phase 5 Classroom Building Connection & Addition

    This phase included a building addition to connect the classroom building to the cafeteria, creating a large “commons” area open from floor to roof structure.  A large “L” shaped skylight makes up much of the roof area to allow natural light into the entire space. This common area is the connection of the original classroom building to the cafeteria building and includes main stairways and mezzanines to bring the buildings together as one space. 

    The concrete floor in the common area includes a radiant heating/cooling system accompanied by large ceiling fans to move the tempered air through the space. The first floor of the building addition includes the main entry, counselor offices, career center, and a nursing suite connecting to the annex classroom building and uniting the two areas. Also included is an administration area, foods lab classroom, child development classrooms and an extended resource suite.  

    The second floor includes the media center and supporting areas, three classrooms, offices, main entry stairway and the commons area mezzanine overlooking the commons area below. The media center leads to an outdoor plaza roof deck with a seating.  

    The building includes floor to ceiling curtain wall system and a large skylight allowing natural light into the space and the open hallway below along with supporting mechanical, electrical and information technology rooms. 

    Phase 6 Classroom Renovation

    This phase included eight classrooms, health and physics classrooms, two chemistry classrooms and a large chemistry lab with supporting areas. Also included is a prep-work room, office space and mechanical, electrical and information technology rooms. The corridors in this area are shared with Phase 4 and Phase 2, which includes the open to structure, natural lighting design. Unit skylights also provide natural light to some of the second-floor classrooms.
