Availability of classrooms is one of the major problems arising in schools today because of the implementation of the K-12 that resulted to the rapid growth of student populations in schools. In this project, the group of Civil Engineering students were given the opportunity by the administration of Lyceum of the Philippines ‒ Laguna to provide the design of the four-storey high school building. The project will decongest the classrooms of the main private school building and will provide a convenient learning facility for the high school students and teachers. As an innovation, the group used the requirements of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) 2009 for Schools’ New Construction and Major Renovations to be eco-friendly and to have a better market among the competitors in the region as well. The special functions of the building are a podium, roof deck, and a mezzanine. The building is wind and earthquake resistant. The design will be utilized in computer softwares such as STAAD v8i and STAAD RCDC. The total cost of the project is said to be roughly around Php 150, 945, 345.97.
