COSSATOT RIVER HIGH SCHOOL

Being in an area dominated by the timber industry the materials desired by the school were that of wood and stone. The exterior image of the school was designed to resemble that of the forestry offices within the area. Metal building panel profiles were selected in a color and shape that are similar to wood slate siding, along with synthetic stone for the building base. The result being an energy/cost efficient building that blended with its surroundings. The 98,000 SF building includes classrooms, science labs, band and choir rooms, a cafetorium with working stage and a competition gymnasium.
