Dunbar High School Project

Dunbar High School Project

Project Overview

The completely new 280,000 square-foot Dunbar Senior High School includes energy efficient building systems, clean and maintainable interior finishes, and bright and healthy classrooms and public spaces.

The project included demolition of the existing 1977 high school, and construction of a new, state of the art, LEED Platinum high school for 1,100 students. Building features now include photovoltaic panels (PV, or solar), geothermal wells, rainwater cisterns, and extensive interior day-lighting.  The shell is still masonry and cast stone, with a curtain wall and punched openings. Interior work includes a gymnasium, natatorium, cafeteria, auditorium, and museum. The site work included creating a new athlete field and bleachers.
