Houghton High School | Houghton Michigan
This 30,000-square-foot addition to the existing high school consists of a gymnasium, locker rooms and facilities for the high school band. Work at this project site included selective building and site demolition, cast-in-place concrete foundations and slabs-on-grade, exterior masonry envelope and interior masonry partitions. The building has concrete slabs on steel joists and metal deck, as well as precast concrete planks and a membrane roofing system. Interior finishes throughout the building include paint, flooring and acoustical ceilings. A full complement of high-efficiency mechanical, plumbing, fire protection and electrical systems have also been installed.
The project was part of the Houghton-Portage Township school district’s energy initiative which upgraded the lighting, building management system, HVAC equipment, fire alarm and security system, as well as information technology improvements throughout the entire school district.
