In June of 2020, we broke ground on the new 24,000 sq.ft. two-story classroom building, on the Cardinal Newman High School campus. This project consists of construction of 3 new buildings, including the 2-story wood framed classroom building, with steel framed mezzanine and stairs with concrete and stucco exterior.
The two-story complex will eliminate the need for existing temporary portable learning spaces, with 18 classrooms, an art studio, four student collaboration rooms and two staff collaboration rooms. The new spaces will surround a central courtyard and will be supplemented by outdoor learning spaces. Sustainable features include energy efficient lighting and mechanical systems, low-flow plumbing fixtures, solar shading, operable windows, natural daylighting, and sustainably sourced materials. The surrounding landscaping will be drought tolerant and include systems for storm water retention.
