Project Showcase: Southwest Licking Local Schools, Pataskala, OH

 

Southwest Licking Local Schools reorganized its entire district from grade-banded schools into four separate communities with K-3 neighborhood schools and a 4-12 campus. The new Watkins Intermediate School is a two-story, 91,855 square foot building that serves the fourth and fifth grades, and Watkins Memorial High School is a 235,000 square foot two-story high school designed to educate just over 1,200 students. The core spaces were designed to handle up to 1,600 students to accommodate Southwest Licking’s growing student population.

BUILT FOR EXPANSION

The aesthetic goal for the phased facility modernization program was to provide a neighborhood-school approach built for energy efficiency and expansion plan. The buildings adopt exterior brick colors, a blended range, and a masonry wall layering approach complementing the school’s spirit colors. The composition of brick types selected has notable characteristics that add a variety of color, texture, and delight and provide a sense of permanence.

A SOLID AESTHETIC IDENTITY

Both school designs feature a combination of modular brick in traditional Commodore Clear Velour, 661 Velour, and accents of school colors – black and gold – with Metallic Black Coarse Velour, Black Diamond Velour, and a custom Yellow Glaze. The exterior brick was a priority to the district as a choice building material. It was determined to be a Locally Funded Initiative (LFI) in the bond issue to the community. The district wanted a durable material that would lower the long-term maintenance costs, and school officials desired the classic appearance of brick.
