High School of Commerce a major renovation/addition project encompassing 219,000 s.f. in a four story existing school and 55,000 s.f. of athletic and science education space in the addition. The highly restricted urban site required careful placement of the addition to accommodate the irregular shape of available land. The reduced footprint required the swimming pool be located under the gymnasium. Careful planning was also required to preserve its valuable wood elements (in the historic Auditorium), leaded glass and masonry elements on the exterior during the integration of new technologies.
