Lovett Middle School
Carter has worked successfully with The Lovett School over the past 10 years to complete its main performance gymnasium, 300-car parking deck, new Upper School, Physical Plant complex, and new Lower School. To complete the 10-year capital improvements program, Carter managed development of a new Middle School facility, which encompasses 75,000 square feet located in the heart of campus. The new building features traditional classrooms as well as foreign-language classrooms, six science labs, and administrative space among other spaces. A multipurpose room with bleacher seating for 450 students and faculty is equipped with high-quality lighting and sound systems to host video productions and live events.
The project boasts LEED Gold Certification and Energy Star compliancy. Key environmentally-friendly features of the project include solar-heated water, recycling of rainwater and cooling system condensate for landscape irrigation, and low-flow restroom fixtures. Another highlight of the new Middle School is its green roof, designed with a variety of interactive plantings and water features.
