Ryan Biggs | Clark Davis provided the structural design of a new wing at the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake High School.

  • The new 25,000-square-foot STEAM wing houses science, technology, engineering, art, and math classes.
  • A new fine arts computer lab is located on the ground floor of the addition, while a wall of windows across the hall opens into a large space divided into three technology workshops and a central design hub.
  • The technology side of the addition includes a machining, welding, and metal-working space. A large wood-working space is connected by a slightly smaller area that is dedicated to creating prototypes and small models that can be scaled up on the metal or wood side of the shop.
  • The second floor of the addition houses math classes, which are paired so they can easily be combined into large, collaborative spaces.
  • A computer science room is outfitted with a high-end video conferencing system, which will allow the district to offer remote classes or teleconference classes from elsewhere.
  • Construction also included updates to the high school library and the construction of a new black box theater.
