River Bend Middle School
This project included the new construction of River Bend Middle School which is part of the Wake County Public School System. The school and its athletic facilities were constructed on a new site of 25 acres. The new building is approximately 195,400 SF and has three stories, one story for each grade level. It features athletic fields, two gymnasiums, a state-of-the-art auditorium that comfortably seats 486 people, a media center, a band/orchestra room, and a large cafeteria.
On-site and off-site construction consisted of grading, storm drainage, utilities, site improvements, paving, landscaping and fencing. Cast-in-place concrete foundations, structural steel and load bearing masonry with brick veneer make up the structure. Typical building interiors include CMU and GWB partitions, acoustical ceilings, PLAM casework, painting flooring and other specialties.
