Architects present design proposals for Penn Manor HS

District architects CrabtreeRohrbaugh & Associates presented high school design proposals to Penn Manor school directors Monday night that provide a sneak peek at what Penn Manor High School might look like when construction is completed.

The school district is planning to spend an estimated $87 million to renovate and rebuild the high school on its existing site, beginning in summer 2019. The project is expected to take at least three years for completion.

The proposals unveiled Monday were based on focus group meetings with academic and athletic department heads, students and district administrators held over recent months, and are subject to change. Additional meetings will be held before the basic floor plan of the school is finalized early next year.

The school directors Monday also approved the purchase of a property at 66 E. Cottage Ave., adjacent to the school site, to create additional space for the project. The purchase price was $90,000.

The high school project must go through several reviews before the board of directors agrees to a final design and approves construction contracts.

Here are slides from Monday’s presentation:
