Sandy Spring Friends Upper School

Project Location - Sandy Spring, MD 

This project consisted of the construction of a new three-story, 43,000 sf upper school academic building for Sandy Spring Friends School. The building includes classrooms, science labs, common and collaborative spaces, indoor and outdoor collaborative learning spaces, administrative spaces, offices, and support spaces. It also included roof terrace planters for student learning opportunities with a drip irrigation system. The new academic building was built on an occupied and fully operational campus site. The new Upper School building is on track to be the first WELL Certified High School in the nation! WELL is a performance-based system supporting and advancing human health and well-being through the built environment. Certification is based on the following concepts: air, water, nourishment, light, movement, thermal comfort, sound, materials, mind, community, and innovation.
