The Indian River High School project included three separate additions totaling more than 50,000 square feet of new academic and laboratory spaces. The project also included the complete renovation of over 250,000 square feet of existing building spaces. These renovations included the auditorium, classrooms, laboratories, the cafeteria and kitchen, locker rooms, field houses, and the gymnasium.
All work on the project had to be phased around the existing school’s operations and student population. The total project value was $29 million.
Indian River High represents Heartland’s 6th major school project for Chesapeake Public Schools. Previous projects include Additions and Renovations to Oscar Smith, Deep Creek, Great Bridge, and Western Branch high schools. Heartland also constructed Greenbrier Middle School in 1999 and major facade upgrades to Deep Creek Elementary School in 2016.
