SSOE, in association with Charleston-based Red Iron Architects, is working with Charleston County School District on a new academic wing for Haut Gap Middle School. The project scope includes the expansion of the school’s academic wings and the construction of a new band room, music support spaces, and a collaborative area.
A New Academic Wing
Haut Gap Middle School, which was originally designed for grades 6-8, is experiencing a high volume of growth. Because of this, the district identified a need for a new academic wing. The scope of this project will include an expansion of the school’s academic wings and the construction of a new band room that will eliminate the need for trailers currently used on campus.
The design team, which includes Charleston-based WBE, took several factors into consideration, including cost, grand oaks, and spatial needs. One option includes six new classrooms, a flex S.T.E.A.M. lab, a band room, orchestra room, soundlock vestibule, music support spaces, a teacher team room, project storage, and a collaborative area.
