DISCOVERY CHARTER SCHOOL

Durham, NC

Project Description
Discovery Charter School is a STEM based middle school with 500 students and 35 staff members in Durham County, N.C. The new school will consist of four classroom buildings that are 10,500 square-feet each, and one 12,000 square-foot gymnasium, connected by a large network of sidewalks. This 49-acre site will also hold a soccer field, 78 parking spaces, and 15 bike racks. There is no public water or sewer in the area, so there will also be a six-acre septic system installed on the property. Summit is providing civil/site design and permitting services, surveying, and construction materials testing.

The school originally began with 68 students and has operated using modular buildings that have expanded each year with increased enrollment. Due to the increase, the construction of a 38,000-square foot building was necessary. It contains 20 classrooms that include three science labs, music room, and gymnasium with a 440-person seating capacity. Summit provided special use permitting, construction drawings, erosion control permitting, off-site sanitary sewer outfall and off-site roadway improvements. Summit also provided geotechnical, CMT and surveying services for this project.
