Design Brief:

The new Howard D. Woodson High School, a three-story building 235,000 square-foot in total floor area, was designed and built to serve a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curriculum for the D.C. Public Schools. Built to replace an 8-story cast-in-place concrete structure, the new building features a central entrance atrium with sloped glazing, large expanses of glazed curtain wall, and rain screen veneer wall systems cladded in stone and brick masonry veneers.

Completed in 2011, the project was developed as a LEED-Gold facility and incorporates vegetated roofs, rainwater collection and gray-water systems, day-lighting strategies and bio-retention filters.

Allstate installed carpet, and other hard surfaces throughout this project.
