21st Century High School Nestled between Mountains in a Picturesque Valley

Working closely with the Floyd County Board of Education, Teachers, and Administrators, Sherman Carter Barnhart developed a program featuring a modern new building nestled between mountains in a picturesque valley, overlooking Gosling Branch.

The District’s first new high school in over 20 years, Floyd Central consolidates and eliminate several existing “Category 5” schools. The three- story plan is highlighted by a massive media center at the front entrance with glass walls open to the second floor. Although compact in size, to aid in energy efficiency, the school offers a 411 seat auditorium with a balcony. Designed to support the District’s unique education philosophy, the new high school includes several labs for three areas of college and career preparatory study, including business, media/arts, and health services/allied health.

The gymnasium features a second-story walking track and seating for 1,038. In addition, there is dedicated spaces for the ROTC, archery program, and concessions outside the gymnasium.

The abundant cafeteria is adjacent to the large kitchen space, allowing the school to implement a food court-style serving area.

Priorities in the design were efficient use of space, getting ample daylight into the building, and configuring spaces to suit the new paradigms of the 21st Century School. As a result, many spaces can be re purposed as educational needs evolve. High performance thermal mass walls, coupled with a geothermal HVAC system, LED low energy lighting and a north/south building orientation assist in maximizing energy while minimizing operational costs.

Complementing the school is a state-of-the-art synthetic turf football/soccer, athletic complex, softball/baseball fields and associated support facilities.

Congrats to Vivian Perry, the deputy executive director of the Kingston Housing Authority, for winning the Sherman Carter Barnhart Amazon card at the SERC-NAHRO Annual Conference!

IGNITED is the perfect name for Asbury’s campaign for its future, and Sherman Carter Barnhart is proud to be a part of it.

The Collaborative Learning Center project, a central part of that campaign, has ignited a passion for creating new collaborations on campus. The building offers design and spaces where 21st Century Education principles can thrive.

The more than 50,000-square-foot building will house the Howard and Beverly Dayton School of Business and the School of Science, Health & Mathematics. The facility will include labs and classrooms, conference rooms, a sales training center, an entrepreneurial group work room, faculty offices, an atrium and auditorium and more.
