D/B Price Package: ES/MS

Fort Bragg, NC

Zyscovich, in conjunction with a contractor, submitted a complete design-build price package for a new LEED Gold elementary and middle school at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Our design concept for this design-build pricing package was to create a school that reflects the tradition and rural architectural character of Ft. Bragg and the surrounding area. The schools at Ft. Bragg had the opportunity to not only be a landmark for the community, but to provide a welcoming, sustainable learning environment that embodies the rich history and tradition of Ft. Bragg and the special men and women who serve our country. This area of North Carolina has a rich and stately architectural history which it is important that the school capture to create a familiar sense of place. The façades were symmetrically composed to complement the main entries to each school. The traditional red semi smooth flashed modular brick exteriors of the building were accented with white brick relief to recall the articulated base, body and tops of a traditional North Carolina public building. The main entry pavilion was designed to capture the sense of tradition on the Ft. Bragg Base and to express the importance of the school as a major civic landmark in the community. The welcoming, crescent-shaped entry plaza contains a landscaped memorial garden so parents and students would have an opportunity to begin and end each school day in remembrance of those who have served.

The design concept for the site was based on an understanding of the character of the surrounding community, the technical challenges of the immediate site and the inclusion of safe and sustainable strategies for site development to create a welcoming learning environment, symbolic of good citizenship and rich tradition. The pattern of streetscape, landscape and architecture of the adjacent residential development was extended into the campus to achieve a harmonizing and compatible integration of the new school as an inviting civic presence. The approach road to the school intentionally meandered to a knoll so parents and students could appreciate the natural beauty of the site while becoming oriented with the site layout, main drop-offs and parking areas. The compact site design was achieved through the mirroring of the provided approved building plan to maintain all field adjacencies, creating an undisturbed natural area that provides exterior learning opportunities for students to complement science, art and other curriculum areas.

Sustainability: Designed to Achieve LEED Silver

Services: Design-Build Pricing Documents to include Master Planning, Architecture, Interior Design, 21st Century School Design, AT/FP Design, LEED Design
