GMC provided full architecture, civil engineering, environmental, geotechnical and construction materials testing, interior design, master planning, programming, landscape architecture and construction administration services for the new Leeds High School. The school facility consisted of 25 regular classrooms located in 2 two-story classroom wings, a large kitchen and cafeteria, media center, 500- seat theater, and a 17,300 square foot competition gymnasium containing two regulation size basketball courts with seating for 1,750 spectators. A new 3,560 seat football stadium, with both home team and visiting team concessions, was also designed. As a secure facility, the administration can lock down the school in part or in its entirety with the push of a button. Security cameras are situated at strategic points and major entryways, and security cameras and software for major equipment diagnostics can be accessed remotely online. The geotechnical scope consisted of drilling 15 borings - extensive cut and fill was required and careful evaluation of the site preparation methods were needed. The team also provided construction materials testing and special inspection services during construction.
