Description
This project included construction of a new 300,000 square foot state-of-the-art High School on the Caledonia Community School's campus. The building is a 3-story masonry structure with brick veneer, metal panels, and metal roofs, steel joists and deck, flat membrane roofs and multiple elevators. Features of this building include administrative space, a 3,000 seat competition gymnasium, a 2,000 seat performing arts theater, several common areas, a media center, and extensive educational space. Caledonia High School was one of the first school buildings in the West Michigan area to incorporate the Green Building philosophy as the basis of design. The High School was deemed LEED Silver Certifiable with some of the following features: a geo-thermal heat exchange system, high-performance windows with specially designed shades to allow for daylight harvesting, high-efficiency plumbing fixtures equipped with motion detectors that reduce the building's water usage, maintenance-free landscaping that requires no irrigation system, building management system with automatic temperature control and a storm water management system. Due to the extensive value engineering efforts by Beckering Construction on this project, the owner was able to construct an entirely separate Alternative Education Building and still have some additional funds remaining.
