On January 23, 2023, Fayette County Public Schools made history with their new Polo Club Middle School groundbreaking celebration. It will be the largest middle school in Lexington, Kentucky with over 169,000 square feet of classrooms dedicated to teaching 1,200 students core subjects and vocational and agricultural labs. Exploration, innovation, and collaboration are vital facets designed into this state-of-the-art facility. KFI provided full mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design and project management services for the project. Energy-efficient systems include geothermal heating and cooling and LED lighting throughout the school. An emergency storm shelter was designed to protect students in the event of a tornado or other severe weather event. The building is projected to open in the Fall of 2025.
