Meridian, Idaho

The final phase of Renaissance High School marks the end of Hummel’s adaptive reuse project at the former Jabil Building in Meridian, Idaho. Over the past decade, Hummel Architects has transformed the former manufacturing facility into three fully-functional components of Idaho’s education system, which includes West Ada School District’s District Services Center, Renaissance High School and Idaho State University. The final phase includes the completion of over 20,000 square-feet of empty space on the second floor and renovating over 10,000 square-feet of the fitness area and auditorium.

The renovation features collaboration spaces, industrial architecture compatible with the rest of the facility, LED lighting, improved acoustics and new mechanical systems. When complete, the new spaces will house the CNA and EMT program, general education classrooms, fitness program, lab/lecture spaces for chemistry and biology, and a fully renovated auditorium space used jointly by the District and community. The new spaces are expected to be completed in Summer 2018 before the 2018-2019 school year begins.
