Derby Middle School
The newly designed 72,500 square foot, 3 story Middle School intended for Grades 6 through 8 for the City of Derby. The new building houses about 420 students and in addition to classrooms the school features a media center, cafeteria, full sized gymnasium and science labs. NCA designed the project to comply with LEED Silver requirements. A micro-turbine system supplies the existing high school with electricity and the new middle school with heating and cooling capacity. The site was extremely complicated and involved substantial rock excavation to accommodate the facility on the existing high school site.
