Located right on Wilson Boulevard off of downtown Rosslyn, the new Heights school opened in time for the 2019-2020 academic year and enrolled 775 6th through 12th grade students in Arlington County. Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) is the architectural mastermind behind the cascading terraces and interlocking, yet floating, boxes. The building fans around a pivot point, which serves as the building's core both for the structure and circulation. As the structural engineer of record, Silman worked closely with the design team to preserve the open concept for the occupiable space while developing a helical load path around the pivot point. Early involvement from Gilbane, the construction manager at-risk, proved successful in proactively planning, understanding, coordinating, and ultimately executing the design team's vision.
