Ridge Road Middle School

Charlotte, NC

Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools chose Benesch for the civil and site design of a 130,000 SF two-story 1,200 student middle school building. The project included all site water and sewer design, parking lot with approximately 185 cars, storm water quality design, offsite road improvements/turn lanes surrounding the project site, and athletic fields (400-meter six-lane track with football field, 325-foot baseball field, 225-foot softball field and a 195-foot x 330-foot soccer field). This project is an expansion of the existing 52-acre Highland Creek Elementary School campus previously designed by Benesch. The two schools co-exist on the same property and share the bus parking lot, soccer field, and storm water quality ponds.
