Farmington High School

Three Years, One Community

We are in the midst of a three year, multi-phased CMAR venture in Farmington, New Mexico. The facility will provide 207,000 square feet of new educational and athletic facilities, 60,000 square feet of renovated space, and eighteen acres of new infrastructure, parking, and landscaping.

Demolition + New Construction

The new facilities consist of a three-story, 51,000 square foot academic classroom wing, 113,000 square foot, two-story building for administration, multi-use wing, a science wing, and 43,000 square foot competition gymnasium. Renovation will concentrate on upgrades to the current Fine Arts Building. The current auxiliary gym will be repurposed into a black box theatre, and the cafeteria will be transformed into a fitness and aerobics center.

Learning Next to the Job

To provide the new learning spaces, we have identified the proximity to students and educators as the greatest challenge. The entire campus is active while we renovate, demolish, and replace their buildings, utilities, and parking areas. Because the Farmington High School project is CMAR, we spent an immense amount of time pre-planning with FHS administrators and the FBT Architects team. This was done to maintain the highest degree of safety and security during the entire project.
