Patriot High’s architect tapped to design county’s 12th high school

Moseley Architects, the firm honored across Virginia for its design of Patriot High School and T. Clay Wood Elementary School, both in Nokesville, has been awarded the contract to design and engineer the 12th Prince William County high school.

The School Board approved the $3.45 million contract for Moseley at its Feb. 1 meeting. Using Patriot’s design and adapting it to the new school site “will save approximately $1.5 million by not having to develop a new design,” according to David Cline, associate superintendent for Finance and Support Services.

Patriot was designed as the prototype for the 12th and 13th high schools, a news release said. The new high school to be located in mid-county and slated to open in 2016 will house 2,200 students. Virginia Public School Authority Bonds will fund the capital project.

Moseley Architects and the School Division received awards at the Virginia School Boards Association’s (VSBA) Exhibition of School Architecture, during the VSBA annual convention in Williamsburg. The Patriot High School design garnered a Gold Design Award while the T. Clay Wood project earned a Platinum Design Award, the highest possible ranking. Moseley Architects vice president James M. McCalla indicated that Superintendent Steven L. Walts’ push for more natural daylight and more windows was a big factor in the winning school designs.
