Olympic High School, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools
As part of an expansive building program, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools added a two-story CTE building across from Olympic High School campus. The 35,000 SF addition includes classrooms, advanced manufacturing lab, and mechatronics lab.
Olympic High School CTE program introduces students to engineering, coding, CAD design, and more. With the advance manufacturing lab on the first floor, an isolated structural system was designed to prevent the noise and vibration from disrupting the rest of the building. To further offset noise, a sound control ceiling system was used within the advance manufacturing lab.
The school’s auditorium was renovated with new paint, carpet, and seating. A ramp and lift from the main floor were added to make the stage ADA compliant.
The exterior was designed to match the existing building style. Clay-colored brick added a more elevated and modern finish. Our original concept included metal paneling façade, which we value engineered for a two-toned, brick structure to meet the district’s budget.
