Trailside Middle School

Client(s): Loudoun County Public Schools

Location: Loudoun County, Virginia

Project: Trailside Middle School

Description: Middle School

Project Elements: 

The site is located in Ashburn on what was previously undeveloped land owned by the Loudoun County School Board adjacent to Newton-Lee Elementary school. Initially Urban was asked to prepare layouts for an elementary school on the site; however, Urban’s planners quickly determined that the site would be able to accommodate a middle school program with the addition of adjacent land from the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority (NVRPA). Since Trailside Middle School was a critical piece in the “three school solution” for the Ashburn area, LCPS was able to negotiate a long term lease for the NVRPA parcel to allow them to deliver the much needed middle school.

Engineering Tasks: 

Feasibility analysis, land planning, civil engineering, and construction administration
