Built in 1952, the Union City High School holds 490
students with an area of 58,450 square feet. The total construction costs were
$689,946. Being one of 3 schools with the "finger plan", it is designed
to enhance the rural site conditions and to adapt state standards to local needs,
employ a non-combustible construction system of advanced type. Simple materials
are fully exploited, and the structural elements are uncovered where practicable.
Specific developments include steel in continuity, ground faced concrete masonry,
simple assemblies, and a reduction of trade operations. These design procedures
have produced relatively low building costs in every case.
