WAYNE, PA – Reynolds, a leader in K-12 school construction services, completed construction of additions and renovations to the Upper Bucks County Technical School. The modernization of the 50-year-old buildings ushers in a new era of state-of-the-art technical programs for the 122,700-square-foot facility.
Completed in phases, the $23 million project included modernization of education classrooms while adding new technology; new electrical, heating, and plumbing systems; a small addition; and a covered hallway to bridge the distance between the two main buildings. Various programs benefited from classroom changes and equipment upgrades, while the reorganization of existingspaces improved clustering of related programs.
The 10,400-square-foot addition connects two buildings and eliminates most of the exterior circulation on the site, as well as enhances building security. A new public entrance gives public access to the administration, café, and salon without compromising the security of the students.
“We are proud to work with Upper Bucks County Technical School to deliver affordable, flexible solutions for their expanding facilities,” said William MacLaughlin, Reynolds project executive. “The renovations and additions position the school to attract a broad student base and prepare them for technical careers, from automotive to cosmetology to law enforcement.”
Located in Perkasie, Pennsylvania, the technical school serves about 650 students from the Pennridge, Palisades, and Quakertown
Community school districts.
