Covington High School Classroom Building Expansion


Covington, Louisiana


St. Tammany Parish Public Schools

The project scope includes a significant addition to the high school campus with 70,000 SF of new classroom space on two floors. The new addition will replace 28 existing modular classroom buildings and create a new eastern campus edge contiguous to the original 1970’s main classroom building. At the point of connection to the existing building, a new two-story commons will allow space for student gathering. The north end of the addition will be anchored by a new music and band facility that will allow the entire high school band to rehearse as one, along with adequate storage space for all of their band equipment. The exterior design relates to the existing campus vernacular through the use of a light tan modular brick veneer and corrugated metal wall panels. East and western façade openings are shaded with terracotta baguette louver systems.
