The York School Science Building

One of the first projects resulting from the HGHB designed master plan was the design of a new science building. Originally housed in a converted dormitory, the school was in serious need of upgrading the science facilities to be commensurate with its well known tradition of academic excellence. HGHB led an extensive programming effort with faculty, administration, and students, and a pre-eminent Laboratory Consultant to produce this state-of-the-art science facility. The new building includes four laboratory classrooms and three multipurpose teaching classrooms all clustered around a large central teacher preparation room. The school’s embrace of ‘green’ architecture is apparent and demonstrable and serves as a vehicle for incorporating the principles of sustainability through the science curriculum.
