Building Area: 170,000 s.f.
Date of Completion: Summer 2018
Type: New Construction
Location: Knoxville, TN
Challenge: Through a competitive process, provide a best value middle school design to meet current and future needs for a growing school district.
Solution: Located in a thriving segment of Knox County, Hardin Valley Middle School is designed to accommodate 1,200 students. BMa, collaborating with design-build partner Denark Construction has worked to produce an efficient design placed within a very constrained site. Project cost, construction schedule, and student well-being are all carefully balanced within a building that reinforces an environment of learning and growth. Long term maintenance and energy costs have been thoughtfully considered during the design process to minimize those budget impacts on available operating funds. The overall design seeks to inspire our youth for generations to come.
