North Star & Southwest High Schools

Sinclair Hille Architects, in association with BVH Architects provided design work, plan and specification preparation, bidding documents, and construction for the North Star and Southwest High Schools. The scope of work for the new buildings included  the development of an overall campus plan and educational specifications. Campus planning included necessary utilities services, grading, parking areas, football and baseball / softball areas, site ingress and egress, circulation plan, and landscaping. The schools are designed for approximately 1,500 students with core facilities for 2,000. The schools are arranged for maximum flexibility to accommodate future enrollment changes as well as modifications in curriculum, instructional programs and community services.


I enjoyed working with SHA on the Canopy Street Project.  It was a very complex project which required both large scale design thought as well as a focus on small details. Their professionalism impressed me as well as all of the other clients in the project from restaurants, to hotel operations through condo buyers, SHA continued to move the project forward and solve problems with all in mind.  As a licensed architect myself I really appreciated their willingness to partner with me and listen to my design ideas while improving the direction time and time again. Quite simply, Canopy Street would not have been nearly as successful without SHA’s talented staff.
