spaces for learning.

EDiS Company provided construction management services for the construction of the new Cape Henlopen High School. The new high school is a two-story building with departmental wings which include computer banks and wireless technology throughout. The division of space promotes optimal flexibility as each wing can support several different educational concepts such as math, science, and JROTC. The wings are designed for future growth and expansion. A separate 9th grade academy and vocational wing were also incorporated into the design.

to win.

As part of the construction, a grass football field was converted to synthetic turf. The 3,000-seat bleacher was renovated, and a new synthetic field for women’s field hockey was constructed. Adjacent to the new athletic stadium, a new 10,000 SF field house was built to support all athletic programs. The field house includes a weight room and fitness center, visitor and home team locker rooms, officials’ locker rooms, and equipment storage.

together.

During preconstruction, EDiS worked closely with the District and the architect to evaluate the financial, spatial, and life-cycle cost comparison between renovating the existing school and building a new school. When it was decided to build a new facility on an occupied campus, EDiS worked directly with the District to ensure the safety of the students, staff, and visitors, and to coordinate the traffic flow as to not disrupt the school’s schedule.
