The Allegany High School project took place at the site of the former Western Maryland Health System’s Braddock Campus Hospital in Cumberland, MD. This $50 million project moved students from their current 90-year-old building to a new, state-of-the-art facility with room to grow and enjoy impressive mountaintop views. Open interior spaces gave the student-centric interior more natural daylight, all while maintaining a comprehensive level of security and energy efficiency. Learning spaces and ever-changing technologies work hand-in-hand. Rooms are flexible and adaptable as teaching methods change. The building holds about 865 students, giving the school a chance to grow. Sitework included grading areas for parking, the football and track field, and other athletic fields.
