    An Analysis of Poquoson Middle School

    Beginning in September 2012, a facility analysis of Poquoson Middle School was initiated by Poquoson City Public Schools. Waller, Todd and Sadler Architects and a team of consulting engineers were contracted to evaluate the existing physical conditions of the facility and make recommendations for upgrading through repairs, renovations and modernization. This analysis was by no means an exhaustive facility study and did not include site issues or the delivery of the educational program.

    Findings

    PMS has had multiple building renovations, additions and mechanical/electrical renovations since the building's original construction. Starting with the initial construction in 1932 and ending with the last addition in 1994, the facility is comprised of 11 different phases of construction and is served by multiple types of HVAC systems and three different electrical services fed from two separate transformers.

    The scope of the modernization project will take these findings in consideration as well as the input of PMS staff, PCPS administration and the Poquoson community. The final scope of the PMS Modernization Project will be determined during the design phase and will be detailed on this site.
