STV provided architectural and engineering services for the new Spring Creek School, which houses two separate
intermediate/high schools. The 154,000-sf four-story structure features brick masonry with precast concrete panels and aluminum façade details. The highly space-efficient school was designed to meet the NYC Green Schools Guide Rating System’s sustainability certification requirements. The innovative design houses each of the two schools on different floors, and places the lower and upper grade levels on opposite ends of the floor, separated by centrally located administrative and shared instructional spaces. STV designed a variety of program spaces, including classrooms, science labs and demonstration rooms, technology rooms, music and choral rooms, a library, administrative offices, a gymnasium, a 550-seat auditorium and two cafeterias with a common kitchen. The firm designed the $75 million facility to serve the community by placing the gym and auditorium on the first floor, accessible from the lobby. Construction was completed in 2012.
