Herndon High School
This high school project includes three additions totaling 120,516 square feet and renovation of the 292,193-square-foot original building to meet the requirements of the Fairfax County Public Schools Education Specifications. The admin/library wing south addition at the front of the school dominates the entry façade and provides a new welcoming school image. The new science wing and band/music north addition are situated at the rear of the facility.
The school’s key interior features include Main Street (main circulation spine), orientation nodes at strategic locations, conversion of the cafeteria into a food court, a new library on the second floor, a renovated auditorium, and an expanded main gymnasium with an arena seating configuration. The interior finish palette uses the school’s colors (red and black) as the theme with black and white graphics of the history of the Town of Herndon at the orientation nodes.
Infrastructure improvements include HVAC system and electrical system replacement, data/security upgrades, and selective shell improvements, which include window replacement and roof replacement masonry wall repairs.
