KCBA Staff Tour New Colonial Middle School
KCBA staff members from both offices met for lunch and to tour the currently under construction new Colonial Middle School in Plymouth Meeting, PA on July 13th. Led by Project Manager Jim Keiffer, the
KCBA planned and designed this new 175,000 sq. ft. high school for 900 students. A replacement for the original Bishop McDevitt High School in downtown Harrisburg, the new building architecturally reflects notable features of the beloved original including a reinterpretation of the school’s iconic twin towers. In addition to a full complement of educational and support spaces, the school features many amenities to support students’ spiritual growth such as a chapel for over 100 students and state-of-the-art auditorium capable of accommodating the entire student body. A number of dynamic community spaces including the cafeteria, gymnasium, and auditorium are centrally located near the building entrance to facilitate after-hours use by the public. The project also encompassed a new outdoor athletic complex including a football stadium and multiple playfields.
