The 800-student Silverland Middle School is located on an approximately 31-acre site. The design and construction schedules on this $22 million project were very ambitious, as the scope of work included the building site, athletic fields, parking areas, several public streets, and all utilities; a 600-student elementary school will be added in the future. Lumos provided planning, surveying, geotechnical investigation, hydro-logic and hydraulic analysis, site development, landscape architecture, materials testing, inspection, and construction assistance. The design team implemented many sustainable features: landscaping that utilizes drought-tolerant plantings and large shade trees over walkway and parking areas; grading with low-impact-development design elements; an array of small wind turbines to meet part of the electrical demand; and solar panels, utilized to heat the building. Coordination among team members has been crucial due to the complexity of all the systems involved.
