Albuquerque Public Schools
Highland High School Figge Hall was a complicated, multi-phase project in an operating high school campus. Phase I – the construction of the new classroom building pictured – took just over 12 months to complete.
The 52,000-square foot project was the first New Mexico public high school designed and constructed to meet and earn the Gold Level LEED for Schools. The facility is home to classrooms and computer labs and features a breadth of environmentally friendly qualities, including noise-reduction components, 44 percent recycled construction materials, organic paints and sealants, low-flow plumbing fixtures and windows for natural lighting.
