Salida HS was an old building with numerous additions that were all well beyond their useful lifespans. As a 2010 BEST project, we replaced it with a new state-of-the-art facility. The new school has 3 wings – a 2-story classroom wing, a performing arts wing with a 375-seat auditorium, and a vocational/athletics wing with 2 gyms and 2 shop classrooms. These are all tied together with a commons area and exterior courtyard which overlook the new playing field, parking and outdoor amphitheater. This project attained LEED Gold.
