REEDY CREEK MIDDLE SCHOOL

Location: Wake County Public Schools, NC
Budget: $40 million
Size: 59,600 sf
Year Completed: 2003

This Wake County prototypical middle school was previously used for Wakefield Middle School and Holly Ridge Middle School. As a cost savings measure, this building was redesigned to utilize load bearing concrete tilt wall panels with brick facing. The building is two stories with mechanical penthouses and mezzanines. The structural steel framing is supported by interior steel columns and the perimeter wall panels.  Exposed gabled steel trusses frame the roof over the gymnasium. The entry canopy is exposed structural steel framing.
