Apex Engineering Inc. has been the elected Engineer for St. Andrew’s School for over a decade. Our team has worked hand in hand with St. Andrew’s to ensure that their facility’s routine is not interrupted by the construction of the projects.
Arts Center: Apex Engineering Incorporated prepared a site design for a 45,000 ft Arts Center, consisting of classroom and practice rooms for music, theater, drawing and other art related disciplines. The centerpiece of the Arts Center is a state-of-the-art concert hall both acoustically and mechanically. This project includes the demolition of the existing building, topographic survey of a portion of the site, utility and grading design, record plan approval and variances for relief from the subdivision and zoning code.
Field House: We prepared site design plans for a 55,000 sf athletic field house addition to the existing historic gymnasium. The new structure is designed to include an indoor track circling 3 multi-purpose courts, upgrade to the racquetball courts, new locker rooms and athletic storage space, along with a state of the art exercise and workout area. This project includes the remodeling of the existing historic gym building. The site design included a topographic survey of the entire 2,500-acre site, utility and grading design, underground stormwater management and platinum LEED certification. This project received the GOLD Award for the LEED design from U.S. Green Building Council. The design had to be carefully graded to maintain existing athletic fields adjacent to the building and maintain access by the students to all of the existing buildings.
Tennis Courts and Pond: This project included the design of a 14-court tennis facility and organic garden and greenhouse, with a small pond that will be used for recreational skating, fishing and other leisure activities. A pump powered by a wind turbine will pump water from the pond to irrigate the organic garden.
