DF Gibson provided master planning and full A/E design services for the expansion and modenization of Kearny High School. The Master Plan provided the 1,700-student school with a framework to accommodate a rapidly growing population. Project implementation includes building a 90,000 sf classroom addition inserted into a light-court, along with renovating the existing 260,000 sf structure. The renovation of the existing building's exterior, completed in the 1920's, required SHPO approval.
The building was partially financed through the FAA/Port Authority of New York and New Jersey's aircraft noise abatement program.
