This single-story middle school is the first of two projects designed and constructed for the Blue Ridge ISD. To help meet their budget and complete a bond issue after previous proposals were rejected, Ramtech helped value engineer both buildings leaving the District with enough funds to cover the costs of other renovations, site improvements, and facility upgrades. The Accelerated Building System was used to construct an 18,088 sq. ft. facility featuring 12 classrooms, two science labs, and administrative space. Designed to match the adjacent high school by using a split-faced block ma¬sonry exterior, the building also integrates existing low voltage systems, and utilizes a mechani¬cal and lighting system designed to meet the District’s energy management program.
