The new Performance Learning Center (PLC) for Cabarrus County Schools is being constructed at 4521 Weddington Road, just behind Harold E. Winkler Middle School. This facility will replace the current PLC that is located at J.N. Fries Middle School. The school will be accessed from the entrance of Weddington Hills Elementary and Harold E. Winkler Middle Schools off Weddington Road.
Cabarrus County Schools entered into contract on August 7, 2017 with Liles Construction Company, Inc. and Morris Berg Architects for the design-build delivery of this 13,496 square foot school. The school has a program capacity of 125 students with a core capacity of up to 150 students.
The PLC will offer a creative and unique learning environment that will cater to a very specific group of our high school population. There are a total of nine (9) classrooms that make up the learning space in the programming. Six (6) of these classrooms provide an open concept learning space that share a small collaborative break out area for small group study. These six (6) rooms have a full glass overhead door that can be opened onto the large 2,400 square foot multipurpose area. The open concept design of these classrooms is industrial with no ceilings and exposed structure painted. Polished concrete floors will help to show off the uniqueness of this space and benefit CCS with the long-term maintenance cost as well. We have anchored the six (6) unique classrooms with three (3) traditional style classrooms as well.
We are providing a warming kitchen, media center, storage and janitorial space as well and the necessary administrative space for principal and staff. An outdoor basketball court and picnic area has been captured in the overall site design for students and staff to use.
Security is always key in our designs and is no different here. We have controlled access at all exterior doors and video phone access at the main entrance.Conceptual Floor Plans & Artist's Renderings of New PLC
