Turner, in a joint venture with White Construction, recently completed construction on Samuel C. Mumford Senior High School.

The 239,000 square foot school features five academic core areas, a media center, science laboratories, and a community health clinic operated by Henry Ford Health System based in Detroit.

The school was designed to function as a series of smaller learning communities within a larger campus. It is anchored by a spacious, bright open commons featuring a cafeteria, studying and meeting spaces. Adjacent to the commons is the media center with access to the recently added performing arts wing, which features an 800-seat auditorium. The athletic wing features a 1,200-seat gymnasium and eight-lane swimming pool.

Exterior features include outdoor space for baseball, softball and tennis. A multipurpose field with synthetic grass provides a durable surface for football, soccer and the school’s marching band. Spectator stands and accessory buildings are also included.

The project is seeking LEED certification.
