Penn Hills Senior High School Named Outstanding High School Design

HRG is proud to announce that Penn Hill Senior High School has been honored as an Outstanding High School Design by American School & University Magazine.  HRG served as the civil and site design engineer on this project alongside the architectural team at Architectural Innovations, LLC.

The 301,000 square foot facility seamlessly integrates technology into the classroom and incorporates many green design principles to help the school district lower its energy costs.

Because the new building was built on the same site as the existing building, HRG had to carefully phase the development of the site in order to avoid disrupting school activities.  Once the new building was complete, students were transitioned to that facility, the previous building was demolished, and site work began for athletic facilities and additional parking.

HRG’s project manager Jim Feath said, “It was an honor to work on this project and be a part of Architectural Innovations’ team.  We’re proud of the facility we were able to create together.”

American School & University Magazine assembles a distinguished panel of education administrators, facility professionals and architects to select the best in school and university designs from that year.  Penn Hills Senior High School was one of seven high schools across the United States cited by the panel as an Outstanding High School Design.

Congratulations to our partners at Architectural Innovations on this achievement!”
