Master Plan and Design for New High School
A new Catholic High School for the Diocese of Jefferson City, MO, this master plan and design is a joint project with Peckham & Wright Architects of Columbia, MO. It is a multi-phased project that provides the flexibility necessary when beginning a new high school in a quickly developing area. Phase I includes the sitework along with 84,000 SF of building which incorporates 14,000 SF of shell building ready for immediate expansion.
The project includes a science department with two labs, one fully equipped and the second one with flexible furnishings so it can be used for multiple uses, such as biology, physics, forensics, chemistry, etc. These labs are adjoined by shared prep and storage rooms. There is also a separate lecture room with windows and a direct connection to the fully equipped lab, providing for a more cohesive department.
Located on Route 63, just south of Columbia, Fr. Tolton Regional Catholic High School opened in the fall of 2011 for students in grades 9 and 10, expanded in 2012 to include grade 11, and again in 2013 to include grade 12.
