Northview High School expanded over the years from its original construction in 1961 to include additions on both ends of the facility in 1971 and 1998. While the newer portions of the building were in fair condition, the original building consisted of outmoded spaces connected by long, narrow corridors.
TowerPinkster conducted a facility assessment and determined that the best solution would be to demolish the middle third of the 270,000 square foot building and construct a new, two-story 100,00 square foot addition. Features will include a new entry, offices, a district-wide copy center, kitchen and cafeteria, locker commons, science and computer labs and new classrooms with shared learning space. A 600-foot long curved glass feature wall connects the two existing portions of the building, enclosing the interior student concourse.
The facility assessment also identified the need to replace the high school’s natatorium and make several improvements to athletic facilities. TowerPinskter transformed the existing pool into a new fitness center and designed a 13-lane new pool with expanded bleacher seating, locker rooms and a wet classroom. Other athletic improvements include renovations to the existing gymnasiums, a new athletic director’s suite, locker rooms, an aerobics studio, batting cages, restroom facilities, an indoor track and a school spirit store.
