Progress and Updates

December 2019

The Homestead High School Construction Project momentum continues…

At the December 17, 2019, SACS School Board meeting, SACS’ Jim Coplen, Owner’s Representative, and partner representatives from Hagerman, CSO Architecture Interior Design, MKM Architecture + Design, and Performance Services, presented the latest Homestead High School Project design development plans. 

While extensive progress is evident in the attached illustrations, specific design details and elements remain fluid and are subject to change as the design process continues.

  • More than 384,000 sf of total new construction
  • More than 333,000 square feet of renovated space

  • Collaborative work spaces

The first phase of the schematic design process is coming to a close. Below is a link to a Homestead High School (HHS) bubble diagram which illustrates the footprint of the building and the intended usage of certain areas.

PHASE 1 Schematic Design - Bubble Diagram

The classroom clusters are indicative of two or more classrooms in those designated areas.  This design is preliminary and subject to change as we continue through other phases of design.

The building will accommodate 3000 high school students with adequate and appropriate classroom and instruction spaces as well as common student areas.  It also accommodates our excellent co-curricular and extra-curricular programs and activities.  We are examining the traffic flow, both human and vehicular, as the site plan is being established.

We are now ready to move into the next design phase (Design Development) which will help our professional partners develop more details within the building and the site.  They will do this by meeting with the applicable stakeholders and users of the building. 

As promised, we will continue to be transparent and share the progress of the HHS Construction Project as new information becomes available.
