Hussey Gay Bell, and associate architect, Architectural Resources Cambridge of Boston, Massachusetts partnered to design a building that would complement the surrounding facilities and anchor the Upper School buildings surrounding a central quad.

The Upper School STEM building is the initial phase of Country Day’s $20 million “Invest in Excellence” campaign to improve campus facilities and better meet the needs of students. To make way for the project, the existing Charles Clark Gay Library will be demolished. The new 32,000 SF building is slated to house all Upper School STEM classes, including five math classrooms, five science labs, an energy learning lab and a fabrication/maker space.  Other building features will include a state-of-the-art learning stair, library, conference/meeting rooms, common areas for students, Deans’ offices, and a second-story outdoor gathering space that overlooks the quad.

The construction is made possible thanks to several donors and former graduates, namely Bud and Shirley Mingledorff.  Savannah-based West Construction Company is serving as the CM-at-Risk on the project which is anticipated to reach completion in the Fall of 2022.
