New STEM Facility
The Hill School upgraded its STEM facilities by creating a new center, incorporating the existing arts and crafts building and science building with an addition to link the two into one cohesive structure. The new Shirley Quadrivium Center provides 522 students from 23 countries with spaces to learn math, chemistry, biology, physics, engineering, and computer science; hands-on areas and labs for testing/fabrication, emerging technology and integrated science; a broadcasting studio; and a greenhouse.
IMEG completed a conditions assessment and feasibility study for the mechanical and electrical systems. Our recommendations for a high-performance, energy-efficient facility incorporate principles of sustainable design and were informed by energy modeling and life cycle considerations.
Engineering services included replacing existing mechanical and electrical systems and adding new life safety systems, including sprinklers throughout. Campus power, steam, domestic cold water, fire alarm and tele/data services were reused and extended, with a new chilled water plant and new fire pump provided.
The Hill School was rated in the Top 5 Best STEM high schools in the Philadelphia region in 2023.
