Project Description

SCA AugMartin photo 1August Martin High School is a magnet school with five separate vocational academies,
including a Culinary Arts School. This school has requested the design and construction of a new freestanding Greenhouse, to be constructed in the middle of a large enclosed Courtyard.

A Scope Report was prepared to investigate existing    conditions, and to meet the client’s needs. Three-dimensional Sun Studies were prepared to simulate the light conditions throughout different seasons. The project also includes Accessibility upgrades to allow for handicapped access to the Courtyard area and to the new Greenhouse.

The Scope Report is used as the basis for the development of the Construction Documents. The initial report estimate is developed in conjunction with the overall project design. All drawing data is supported by a Specification book.SCA AugMartin photo 2
