Lick-Wilmerding High School

San Francisco, CA

Lick-Wilmerding High School is one of California’s leading College Preparatory schools. This 54,140sf private high school campus expansion replaces an outdated 1950s-era building with a new steel structure while maintaining the historic building exterior. The building replacement accommodates new classrooms, staff offices, locker rooms for gym use, and state-of-the-art dance studio.


The project also builds a new entry, plaza, lobby and administrative offices at Ocean and Howth streets and renovated part of an existing building to reconfigure and expand science laboratories and technology classrooms. The project achieved LEED Platinum certification, as well as Living Building Challenge–Petal Certification, a program that requires meeting a series of advanced performance requirements during 12 continuous months of operation. Incorporating Net Positive Energy in its design, the building produces more energy than it consumes.
