WAKE COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM
Leroy Martin Middle School
RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA
The Martin Middle School project involved building replacements and renovation of the existing campus. New construction included an administration area, dining facility, gymnasium, plant operations, and a three-story classroom wing. Renovation to the existing auditorium included constructing a new accessibility ramp, enlarging the stage, adding new seating, lighting, acoustical treatments, electronics, stage rigging, controls, and finishes. The school remained occupied during the 2-year phased construction, which included the design of all temporary services, pedestrian and vehicular routes, and system integration to maintain full school operation.
The site was improved with a new running track, softball field, play fields, parking, vehicular circulation, and drop-off areas. Storm water re-use was also incorporated into the design. The completed campus included 125,000 square feet of new construction and 48,000 square feet of renovation and incorporated a number of sustainability features.
