Location: Roanoke, VA
Project type: New Construction
Project Size: 6,920 sq. ft.

IDG was hired by Roanoke City Schools to provide design services for a tensioned fabric structure. This type of design was selected because it provides an efficient building envelope for reduced heating and cooling costs. Without the need for columns or bearing walls, the building allows for more open spaces including a gym. The new construction includes three classrooms, a gymnasium, two toilet facilities, and storage space. A mezzanine was also constructed above the classrooms to house the mechanical equipment.
