Fairfax High School
Fairfax County Public Schools, Fairfax, Virginia
The project began with creating a master plan that centered on Fairfax High School program requirements. During this process, the master plan revealed the need to renovate and expand the high school in order to comply with the city’s educational vision and Fairfax County Public School educational specifications. Consequently, the renovation and expansion plans included reorganizing spaces; enlarging classrooms; adding teacher planning spaces, breakout spaces, and common areas; and introducing natural light into interior spaces. Additional steps included upgrading the school’s building systems to comply with current building code standards and ADA requirements and addressing site improvements to meet parking, bus loading, and stormwater management guidelines set forth by the City of Fairfax.
