The newly constructed, $24 million, progressive design-build Science and Media Commons building at Del Campo High School offers innovative classrooms for physics, chemistry, earth science, biology, and AP environmental science. The 34,000 square-foot two-story building features ten state-of-the-art science classrooms, six teacher preparation rooms, and facilities for both staff and students. The project also includes a high-bay, multi-media Commons designed to encourage student collaboration and showcase high school academia. The steel building has a Special Concentric Braced Frame lateral system with concrete over metal deck 2nd floor and bare metal deck roof. Building drifts were limited to allow direct attachment of the exterior light-gauge walls.
