Details

The Yorktown High School renovation replaced all of the existing structures except for the 2004 addition and the house portion of the auditorium. The project encompassed approximately 300,000 sq. ft. including a 19,000 sq. ft. aquatic facility.  The entire renovation included technology-enhanced classrooms, studios and laboratories, media center, cafeteria and kitchen, administrative offices, theatrical lighting, rehearsal rooms, black box theater, as well as physical education spaces including competition and auxiliary gyms. The school remained occupied so that construction had to be phased to suit continuous operation of the school program.  Many new state-of-the-art electrical systems were installed including Fire Alarm, Telephone/LAN, Intercommunication, Master Clock, Lightning Protection and separate auxiliary sound systems for each of the Pool, Gym, Auditorium, Band, Vocal, Orchestra and Dance/Wrestling rooms.  Low voltage relay control panels, motion sensors and daylight photocells have been installed to harvest daylight, limit lighting in unoccupied spaces and control the local HVAC units to conserve energy.  A Wireless Network system covers all areas so students can easily access the internet anywhere on the campus.
