Steve Southerland, while principal-in-charge for the Miller|Hull Partnership, provided design and management services for the12,200 square foot Bertschi Center, which contains a gymnasium, art and music classrooms, an art gallery and underground parking for 18 vehicles. The project also included the renovation of the adjacent single family house structure for use as a Pre-K classroom and offices for the school. Site elements included an artificial grass play field, rubber surface play court and climbing wall and a Pre-K Play area.

The project was certified LEED Gold Rated by USGBC in the spring of 2008. Sustainable features include photovoltaic panels which supply 10% of the electrical power for the building, a 9,000 gallon rain water cistern collection system used to irrigate the site and flush toilets, sustainable and reclaimed materials and natural ventilation.
