Salisbury High School

Salisbury High School

D’Huy has been the Engineer of Record for the Salisbury Township School District since 2003. The Salisbury High School project included three additions and complete renovations of the existing building to accommodate the inclusion of ninth grade at the Senior High. Because the students were to occupy the building during construction, it was important for D’Huy to develop a phasing plan to allow the existing buildings systems to be maintained while being renovated and to minimize construction disturbances. D’Huy provided conceptual and design development, project cost estimating, constructability reviews and continuous value management, and construction observation for the project. Construction commenced in 2009. Extensive site work modifications and interior renovations were completed during the summer in preparation for the start of school in 2009/2010. The second phase of the project was completed in December of 2010 and turned over to the District for use on the first day back from the winter holiday break. 

The additions included a new two-story wing for science, art, family consumer science and supporting classrooms. A new music wing and a new secure entrance were also included in the project.  The renovations included complete replacement of the building’s HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems. The administration/guidance suite, library, and auditorium were completely remodeled, and the classroom upgrades included new multi-media systems as well as new finishes.

D’Huy continues to provide Resident Project Engineering services to the Salisbury Township School District providing assistance with all of their capital projects and facility management needs.
