Tremper High School

Project Background

George Nelson Tremper High School needed a renewal of its academic, administrative and infrastructure facilities within their existing building. Focus on updates to the programmatic spaces, finishes, and energy conservation were key.


Inventory and evaluation of existing facilities

Prioritization of needs

Renovation of the food service areas, pool, gym, locker rooms, auditorium, tech service classrooms, art classrooms, library and administrative offices

Student safety, welfare, and security upgrades

ADA accessible upgrades

Acoustic evaluation of the auditorium

Energy upgrades through all new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing elements

Careful coordination of new elements within an existing building

Comprehensive project through construction administration


The design team worked closely with the project stakeholders (principal, instructors, directors, and facility team) to work through the needs and priorities for the project. Two small additions were provided for new entries into the building at the front main entry and a new evening entrance in order to enhance the student safety and security of the building. ADA upgrades provided new locker room layouts and dedicated seating areas in the auditorium. The auditorium was also “tuned” with new finishes to provide the ideal acoustic performance in the room. The energy upgrades to the facility met the requirements of the Energy Savings Performance Contracting (ESPC) for schools funding, to provide a modern functional facility. The renovations also incorporated all new finishes that engaged school colors and a warm palette that is complementary to the existing building.
