2 Sussex Technical School District Georgetown, Delaware May 25, 2007 Page 2 Sussex Tech Site Introduction Vicinity Map Sussex Technical School District is centrally located in Sussex County a few miles east of Georgetown, Delaware. The District High School serves 1250 students in technical and pre-certification and certification programs for students in: Athletic Health Care Auto Diesel Technology Auto Body Repair Building Maintenance Carpentry/ Millwork & Cabinetry Children's Education & Services Cosmetology Criminal Justice Digital Publishing & Print Design Electrical Electronics Environmental Health Professions Welding

4 Sussex Technical School District Georgetown, Delaware May 25, 2007 Page 4 Issues Sussex Tech is an award winning school and educational program, in spite of its facilities. The original building was constructed in 1960 with additions and annexes and outbuildings in 1964, 1970, 1975, 1986, 1995 and The change from partial day attendance to all day comprehensive educational program added another building addition and renovation in 1995; but little renovation of the earlier wings has occurred. Updates to the facility for program changes have been sporadic and locally concocted. While outstanding maintenance and on-going technology updates have kept the program running smoothly, the numerous buildings on campus have caused a number of long-term problems that need to be addressed in the present day. A campus of 20+ buildings cannot be adequately secured for student safety and security. Students often have a building change between every class. Parking and drives are difficult to separate from the public areas and entries. Control of the main entry has recently been added by hiring a full time “security” staff member to “greet” every visitor that comes into the front door. Transportation and traffic safety are an additional problem on the campus. Many students drive due to the duration of county-wide bus routes and the large percentage of students involved in work-study programs and internships. The staff, students, and buses are intermingled in a labyrinth of asphalt and parking. A campus-wide building assessment has been performed as a first step to the masterplanning process. This assessment has revealed that the majority of the earliest construction is un-insulated solid masonry walls and inadequately sloping roofs. The outbuildings were all constructed utilizing the cheapest possible construction in the prefab metal building model and are extremely inefficient and aging quickly. The buildings are not of permanent construction methods, but more those of storage and warehouse value. Numerous buildings also contribute to a severe energy problem. Each building has its own energy plant. The school campus has 9 boiler rooms, one large chiller and cooling tower, and 17 rooftop air handling units. The problem is compounded when students must move from one building to another with every class change. Doors are constantly opened and all the heat is repeatedly lost from the halls and classes. Most of the outbuildings are only heated, with little or no fresh-air and have no cooling system.

5 Sussex Technical School District Georgetown, Delaware May 25, 2007 Page 5 Goals: “Under one Roof” Goals of the Board, Superintendent and Staff all focus on the single goal of “Under one Roof.” This includes moving all the students into a single structure, improving the site, and renovating the existing building. SPECIFIC GOALS: Improve student security Update to meet codes for safety and health Improve building energy efficiency and indoor air environment quality Improve expanding and new program facilities Separate buses from students and parking Separate the public from the students on site and in the building Provide facilities for the complete high school experience Improve parking safety and quantity FACILITY GOALS by the leadership team Create consistent learning space Bring all areas up to current code Create a safe environment for the school population Create a single point of entry and student drop off Climate comfort all areas with energy conservation and good air quality Establish attractive interiors and exteriors Utilize low maintenance finishes which are easy to clean and long lasting Develop technology infrastructure for present and future needs Enhance public use and have sports and band events fully accessible and secure from the balance of building

6 Sussex Technical School District Georgetown, Delaware May 25, 2007 Page 6 Solutions: By removing the outbuildings and adding one major addition to the existing building, we can clarify the site circulation, safety, and increase parking, while renewing the facility for several major programs and providing the missing elements of the high school program. The construction of one major addition allows for staged, phased renovations of the existing wings without relocating students too dramatically. The Adult Ed Program can be additionally provided for in some separate outbuildings, lessening the overlap of jurisdictions. Phase I – Classroom Addition – Funding Received 2007 Phase II – New Addition Phase III – Renovate Older Sections

12 Sussex Technical School District Georgetown, Delaware May 25, 2007 Page 12 Total paved area = 363,094 +/- Site Analysis – Paved Areas An enormous amount of the campus area is paved, and is very inefficient in parking extent. Current parking is 540+/-. Fire Lanes must be greater than 10’ and less than 50’ from the building. Bus loading takes part of a parking lot – mixing traffic and students. The front drive is gated at night, and becomes a dead- end; thereby requiring a turnaround and two way traffic. Gates DO

Adding new auditorium, cafeteria, and PE/Health areas create a public zone for concentration of evening activities. Design Features include: Lockers will be at first floor level with a wrestling room above on a mezzanine open to the health/gym below. Showroom for the auto program is designed to display special projects and participate in the “ car dealers” environment Operable walls will separate adjoining programs and classes for flexibility (shown thus: ) Link to the existing classroom building will be overhead glass rolling doors to bring materials through to the courtyard, in addition to fire exit doors.
