Overview

The challenge given by Unity Christian High School was to design and construct a new, state-of-the-art facility on an extremely tight timeline—18 months. To accomplish this goal, the design consisted of utilizing pre-cast walls, not a common practice within the educational community.

This 149,000-sf pre-cast, two-story building hosts two educational wings with an open, airy atrium-like feel. Components of the building include two floors of classrooms, administrative offices, commons area, a running track, a multipurpose room with locker rooms, Physical Education Lab with a weight room, and music/band, choir, and art rooms.
