Ballou High School

Heller Electric Company completed the electrical work for the 356,000 square-foot Frank W. Ballou High School complex. The total construction cost was $124 million. The main building will achieve a LEED-Platinum rating due to:

  • High-efficiency heating and cooling systems
  • Low-E glass coatings
  • Rooftop solar panels that will generate power for purchase by the local electric utility

The complex which serves as a school also boasts an outpatient health clinic, 800-student adult education space, a full-service automotive shop, a collegiate-level completion swimming pool and a rehearsal/recording area for Ballou’s nationally recognized marching band. The complex also includes a new football stadium and other outdoor buildings that had to be integrated into a 16.4-acre hillside site.
