Booker T Washington High School, Atlanta Public Schools

2006

This scope of work included the most extensive and comprehensive historic renovation and the largest expansion since the school opened its doors 80 years prior. In addition to the owner’s mandated upgrades and improvements to the electrical, mechanical, security and data / communications systems, the project included the renovation of the free-standing Career Academy and the removal of an earlier single-story addition for the kitchen / dining, and replacing it with a two-story addition of larger footprint to contain a new student cafeteria with a full-service kitchen and a dining area with seating for approximately 770. The new addition also included the new media center on an upper main level of the main campus building. Further elements of the scope of work included an addition to the rear of the Fine Arts Building to ensure that all arts-related programs can be housed together, the establishment of the 9th Grade Academy on the third floor with classroom space to keep these students entirely self-contained, the re-use and re-assignment of interior spaces throughout the 6-story renovation to fulfill all programmatic requirements, a complete upgrade and refurbishment of the physical education facilities, including locker rooms showers, and major site improvements.
