Stantec’s planning study for Beachwood City Schools’ high school facility engaged stakeholders and determined opportunities for replacement of a 1960’s classroom wing; renovation/relocation of the music and arts area; a new football stadium; and new locker facilities.
Sustainable design strategies to help the district pursue LEED certification include daylight harvesting, bio filtration, natural ventilation, and a high efficiency HVAC system. A “green classroom of the future” was designed to showcase green products and materials in use.
Stantec designed various new and renovated sections of the Beachwood High School. The building opened for the start of this school year following a summer that was the most intensive phase of a multiphased construction project. This phase featured a new athletics wing including an auxiliary gym, locker rooms and multi-purpose space; a new classroom wing; a renovated classroom wing and a new music suite. Future phases will include a new media center, administration suite, community room, cafeteria and servery. The $35.6 million upgrade to Beachwood High School will be completed in its entirety in the fall of 2013. The building is tracking for LEED certification.
