WESTPORT, Maine—When completed in August 2021, the new $75 million Westport Middle-High School will serve up to 860 students in grades 5-12.
This two-story educational building will span 187,000 square feet and is being designed on a project-based learning curriculum with emphasis on STEAM education. There will be a Learning Commons on the ground floor, along with a maker space, fabrication labs, and childcare vocational spaces. It will include two full size gymnasiums, 1,320 square feet of physical education alternative space and a walking track.
The Middle and High school academic spaces are separated from each other, and both will have access to a shared commons. A state-of-the-art library media center is located on the main floor adjacent to the main entrance. The building envelope consists of masonry, glazing and metal panels.
Agostini Construction is the general contractor on this impressive project. Jonathan Levi Architects is the architect.
The project is seeking certification from the US Green Building Council’s LEED Rating System, Version 4 New Construction and Major Renovation.
