|Project Title:||Moultrie Middle School|
New 900-student Junior High School which was opened in August 2009 and replaced an existing school which was demolished. The 120,000 sf, 2-story building is equipped with 39 classrooms and several computer labs. It accommodates 900 6th, 7th, and 8th graders with a core facility to accommodate 1200, allowing for future expansion of the facility. The school has been laid out and master planned for these future additions to be added on to each of the three classroom wings. The location of the school created unique challenges for the design team in that the Town of Mount Pleasant uses the same property for a popular Farmer's Market and accommodations for both uses had to be considered. Charleston County School District entered into a joint-use agreement with the Town of Mt. Pleasant which allowed the Town to construct the recently opened Farmer's Market and will also be used by the school as an outdoor learning classroom. The Town also constructed a pocket park off Coleman Boulevard. This collaboration also included the Town's use of the athletic fields of the school. Additionally, the new facility design had to be in keeping with the town`s recently adapted Coleman Boulevard Overlay, which is part of the town`s revitalization plan. Significant coordination between the design team, the school district, and town staff was required. The exterior front architectural design of this facility was designed to pay homage to the old Moultrie High School which existed on the site previously.
