Jack Britt High School
Structural Precast Elements:
Two-Level School Complex with Precast/Prestressed Framing
While buildings alone do not make a great school, they are vital to the educational, emotional and social development of students, staff and the local community. So when Cumberland County Schools needed a new high school, they wanted a design that was modern and technologically advanced, yet respectful of academic traditions. Tindall met this challenge head-on with a high-quality precast, prestressed framing system.
Utilizing cutting-edge techniques, Tindall cast insulated wall panels with an inset brick façade, satisfying the school's request for a masonry building, while compensating for a lack of area masons and slashing months from the construction schedule. The panels also allowed for accenting details superior to traditional concrete block and brick cavity walls. The attention to detail, ornamentation and architectural design won accolades from the 2001 PCI Design Awards, 1998 Architectural Portfolio competition and American School & University Magazine.
