Milwaukie High School
North Clackamas School District | Clackamas Oregon
The project at Milwaukie High School involves the demolition of the original school structures (constructed from 1925 to 1949). A new school facility will be constructed in the similar location – which will contain the academic and administrative functions. The existing Commons Building (constructed in 1993 and 1999) will remain and be extensively remodeled. The new academic building will be physically joined to the Commons – to provide a more cohesive and connected campus.
The new academic building is designed to be inviting and welcoming, yet at the same time accommodating the latest safety and security features. The three levels of the building are linked with open stairways that provide physical and visual connections between the floors. The overall circulation pathways are simple and well-defined. Daylighting is brought into the building in a variety of efficient and pleasing ways. Each set of classrooms is designed around extended learning areas. These areas will allow flexible learning environments for students beyond the classroom.
All of the building systems (mechanical, plumbing, electrical, lighting, etc.) will be designed using the latest technologies for K-12 facilities. The systems will be energy efficient and sustainable. A photo-voltaic (PV) solar array will be installed on the roof of the new building which will help supply clean, renewable energy to the project.
The main campus will have major site improvements, including a new entry plaza, new academic courtyard and a new event plaza adjacent to the Stadium. Other site work includes improved pedestrian circulation, improved vehicular circulation and new landscaping. A new parking lot on the east side of the campus will help with student and event parking needs.
The project also involves work beyond the main campus. Athletic field improvements and replacements will occur at Lake Road Facility, Rowe Middle School and Milwaukie Elementary.
