Installations are happening all throughout this project! The new utilities for the addition is being installed, and the new drainage line installation for the athletics facilities is nearly complete.
The site grading for the addition continues along the northwest corner of our jobsite, while the installation of the wastewater drainage is happening over at the athletics project!
The new northwest parking lot and building addition has been graded (photo 1) and on the interiors, we have begun the installation of wall framing and drywalls! This is only the beginning, but we’re off to a great start!
We have broken ground for the athletics portion of the project! We are currently demoing the concrete walkway as well as the parking lot.
From design to real life! We are so excited to have the Eastern Hills Addition and Renovation project underway. The library and science classrooms are demoed and the framing for the renovation has begun. This is only the beginning, y’all!
Conceptual renderings give an idea of what some of the renovations and addition may look like in the school, including: the new library, cafeteria, hallway collaboration spaces and art rooms.
Students are sure to embrace the proposed new media center with student collaboration spaces, book stacks, a new tech help desk and more.

VLK Architects recently held a student design charrette at Eastern Hills High School to seek student input and ideas for the school’s new proposed building addition and campus renovations.
VLK displayed various thought starter image boards featuring exterior building images, instructional vs collaboration spaces, and discovery zones and asked students to tag what images they liked and to post notes on why they were drawn to these images.
Afterwards, students were separated into groups and asked to participate in a gaming activity where each group got to design their version of a new library space using cutouts of various activity zones, furniture, and architectural features. Each group then presented their ideas to the group which prompted a very collaborative discussion between all the students of what they hope their remodeled library space might look like.
Students were also asked to define what they feel their school culture is, what they take pride in, and what they might change if they could.
The architects will utilize the students’ notes and designs as references and inspiration during their own design process.
Students expressed their enjoyment in participating in the design charrette and are now looking forward to how Eastern Hills will be transformed.
