This 285,000-square foot, $45,000,000 plus Washington County School District’s construction of the Desert Hills High School marks a masterpiece in the arena of educational space. It was designed in a campus style arrangement with the main building to house administration, classrooms for math, science, social studies, general studies, music and the near 1000-seat performing arts auditorium. Outdoor gathering space was also thoughtfully considered for social interaction for both faculty and student. Wings extending off of the Classroom Buildings Hub stretch toward the Athletic Building and in the opposite direction to the Vocational Technical Center. Key features of the facility include construction consisting of a combination of Integrally Colored Concrete Tilt-up Panels, CMY and an Insulated Metal Panel System and features Geothermal heating and cooling. Exceeding 5-million, the functional as well as decorative electrical work crowns this educational facility with excellence.
