Metcalfe County Middle School
The Owner's program for the 450-student (6-7-8) 67,000 square feet facility included requests for division of
grade areas, and energy-saving features including geothermal HVAC and daylighting. There was also an
emphasis on "The Arts," as a connection to the community, resulting in a 450-seat auditorium to be used by both
the Middle School and adjacent, connected High School, as well as "art" display area over 1,000 sf of wall area
display cases and wall surfaces dedicated to display student work viewable by the community.
We engaged the owner's Building Committee as well as multiple consultations and gathered input from all staff to
develop the design. The $10.6 million facility was opened in Fall 2012.
