LPS Lincoln High School Renovation

LPS Lincoln High School Renovation

Built in 1916, The Lincoln High School project involved an extensive HVAC replacement, as well renovations and an addition to the 420,000-square-foot school. Our work began with a comprehensive building investigation to determine the condition of existing conditions and recommend solutions to meet the school’s needs. We then used a Project Scorecard to determine project priorities.

A top priority was the standardization of systems in all LPS schools to enhance maintenance efforts and reduce energy consumption throughout the District. This led to the replacement of the existing HVAC system with a ground source, geothermal heat pump system.

We also improved and expanded the cafeteria and media center, transforming both of the confined interior spaces into more airy, open places with natural light from clerestory windows and skylights. We restored the historic auditorium and converted its equipment into a contemporary performing arts theater with cutting-edge technology.

Improvements to the building shell improved energy efficiency and restored the school’s historic appearance, and other modifications made the school more ADA/code compliant. The school remained open and fully operational during the lengthy construction process.
