Lick-Wilmerding High School Historic Renovation & Expansion

Forell | Elsesser provided new structural designs for existing, new, and renovated structures


Customized Solution

The project includes a three-story classroom building, a new one-story administration building, and renovation of existing spaces. The classroom building encapsulates a historic façade as part of the new building with a newly added floor. The administration building is a one-story space that creates an open welcome area with a large skylight and a very light structural steel roof. There are numerous changes to the existing surrounding theater and science wing to bring the spaces up to current standards and create better classroom spaces for the students. Forell | Elsesser provided the structural design for both primary structures as well as structural supports for interior spaces, new stairs, and fit-out of new and newly renovated areas.
