Floyd E. Kellam High School
Kimley-Horn provided innovative site design for Floyd E. Kellam High School for Virginia Beach City Public Schools. Our team prepared all stormwater management design, which provided for zero discharge for storms up to a 10-year event and attenuation of stormwater discharge up to a 100-year event.
To achieve this, Kimley-Horn worked with the design team to design an extensive connected system including cisterns, bioretention basins, porous pavement, and underground infiltration. The project received LEED Silver certification. The high school has been recognized with numerous awards including the 2015 Project of Distinction – New Construction Award from the Association for Learning Environments; a 2015 Project of Distinction by the Council of Educational Facility Planners International; and the 2015 Best Secondary School Design award from the Southeast Region of the Council for Educational Facilities Planners International (CEFPI).
