Lorain High School

Lorain, Ohio

Lorain High School was the last school in the district’s 12-year building program. The 400,000 sf building features 21st-century learning environments and is designed to look and feel like a college campus.

On the new school’s second-floor, there is a 12’ wide pass to the other buildings, featuring four classrooms encased in glass. A new welding program joins a Computer Aided Design (CAD) lab and multi-media classrooms. On the east side of the building, a yellow brick road from the previous Lorain High School is visible in a glass-enclosed sports hall of fame. Just inside the building, medallions from Admiral King and Southview adorn the floor, as well as a mural of Lorain Lighthouse covers a hallway wall and spans from the first to the second floor near the media center. The new school also features an 800-seat auditorium, career-technical rooms, 386 security cameras, and a triple gymnasium touted as the largest gym in Ohio at its time.

Sustainable elements that assisted this project in achieving LEED Silver Certification included optimized energy performance, a heat island effect roof, water-efficient landscaping, water use reduction, low emitting materials among others.

Providing Lorain City School District with quality workmanship and attention to detail resulted in minimal punchlist items. Mosser’s relationship, communication, and close coordination with the subcontractors and suppliers ensured that materials were delivered on time and according to specifications.
