Lebanon High School

Greenebaum Structures, P.C., used REVIT software to coordinate structural engineering design for Lebanon High School’s $38 million renovation.

REVIT creates a 3-D digital model shared at all stages by architects and engineers. Design changes made during the process are automatically updated throughout the entire model, immediately alerting designers to conflicts.

The project, begun in 2008, challenged designers to connect three existing drum-shaped buildings at different elevations to add 80,000 square feet to the original 200,000 square feet. A striking feature of the new design is a central atrium highlighted by a triangular translucent skylight 2.5 stories overhead.

“I think it’s going to be a very exciting space,” said Ed Greenebaum, president of Greenebaum Structures, P.C. “The superintendent, staff, and students seem very happy with the completed parts of the project.”

Aside from design challenges, updating the 1969 school was a scheduling feat. School has been in session during much of the phased renovations. Architecture services are provided by Beers & Hoffman, Ltd. and Shonk, Schwear & Associates.
