Providing Excellence in Design combined with Exceptional Service!
Construction of the new, 298,000 sq. ft. three-story Peters Township High School designed by Hayes Design Group Architects and Weber Murphy Fox is well underway, with steel erection and masonry work in progress. The $83 million high school is being constructed on a portion of the former Rolling Hills Country Club in McMurray, Pennsylvania, and will consist of three wings (Academic, Fine Arts, and Physical Education). The steel erection of the academic wing is almost complete and is visible in the aerial photo to the left.
The high school will include fifty general instruction classrooms surrounding a two-story Learning Commons with an adjacent learning stair, 1,200-seat performance auditorium, food court style cafeteria with an outdoor dining patio, 2,000-seat multi-sport gymnasium, 300-seat auxiliary gymnasium, and an 8-lane natatorium. The design features 21st century learning concepts including interactive technology and spaces that promote collaboration with flexible furniture arrangements. Security features were also incorporated into the design and include secure, single point of entry, wide corridors, cameras, and an emergency notification system.
