Northland Pines High School
Scope: New Construction | Area: 250,000 sq ft | Completion Date: August 2006
The Northland Pines School District in Wisconsin partnered with Hoffman when they decided to replace their existing high school with a new,
highly sustainable 250,000 square foot facility that would be built on the same site where the existing school was located.
Meeting the school district’s wish for a healthy, high-performance school, Northland Pines High School became the first LEED® Gold certified public high school in the United States. In addition, Hoffman delivered the project at a cost 25% below the regional average square foot cost of $154 for high schools built in the same year. Northland Pines High School features a media and technology center, a 750-seat auditorium, and a fieldhouse with capacity for 2,600 people—making it one of the largest in Wisconsin.
“It exceeded our expectations, because all along our goal was a Silver certification. It’s nice to be a front-runner when it comes to having an environmental school.”
