Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School Awarded LEED SilverLearn More
BCWH is pleased to announce that Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School has been awarded LEED Silver certification through the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Schools rating system. Richmond Public Schools partnered with BCWH on additions and renovations to the existing middle school which accommodates 800 students as part of the Building the Best Richmond Capital Improvement Program. BCWH’s progressive and high-performance design replaced the aging school, built in 1964, that was determined not cost-effective to renovate following a comprehensive facilities study. New program spaces, including three academic houses, dining facilities, media center, full-size gymnasium, interior courtyards, and associated administration spaces, wrap around the upgraded auditorium space preserved from the existing school. “Design that promotes good indoor air quality, provides natural lighting in occupied spaces and minimizes the affects of the building to the environment are features that made this a successful project,” says Roger Richardson, Principal for the project with BCWH.
