For the new Sanger High School, Huckabee designed a facility that will stand the test of time while involving little maintenance. On the interior, face brick and concrete masonry units create a modern feel while providing a durable surface that requires no maintenance. Terrazzo flooring is utilized in the corridors and cafeteria, requiring no more maintenance than water and a mop – and it will last well over the anticipated life of the school. The restrooms are provided with full-height ceramic tile and solid surface partitions.
On the building's exterior, metal standing-seam roofs were provided to assure long-term protection from the elements. Exterior walls are constructed of solid masonry with face brick veneer and concrete block backup, which provides for a building that will resist mold and requires minimal long-term maintenance.
To address energy efficiency, the team designed the facility to utilize a combination of a four-pipe hot and chilled water HVAC system for the two-story classroom wing and individual rooftop units at the gymnasiums, auditorium and cafeteria. This allows for the individual use of each common area without having to operate a chiller/boiler for a large, unused section of the building. T-8 lamps and electronic ballasts in the lighting system were also provided to maximize energy savings.
