Ridge Road Middle School

Charlotte, NC

Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools chose Benesch for the civil and site design of a 130,000 sf two-story 1,200 student middle school building. The project included all site water and sewer design, parking lot with approximately 185 cars, storm water quality design, offsite road improvements/turn lanes surrounding the project site, and athletic fields (400m 6-lane track with football field, 325’ baseball field, 225’ softball field and a 195 x 330’ soccer field). This project is an expansion of the existing 52-acre Highland Creek Elementary School campus designed by Benesch in 2006. The two schools co-exist on the same property and share the bus parking lot, soccer field, and storm water quality ponds.
