New Lowndes High School
This project includes a new three-story main building on the existing Lowndes High School Campus. This three-story addition is an important project for Lowndes County Schools, as it will provide more square footage for instructional and administrative spaces, using a much smaller footprint than currently exists within the one- and two-story buildings. This addition will free up a significant amount of space on this landlocked campus, allowing for future growth of the High School for many years to come. The new facility will also include a new state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center.
With the original facility built in the 1960s, and numerous renovations and additions through the years, much of the usable space on this 76+ acre campus is currently covered with buildings, parking lots, a football stadium, other athletic fields/facilities, etc. Once completed, students moved into this building and many of the older existing structures were demolished and/or renovated, making way for site improvements such as outdoor seating and additional parking.
This new structure is designed to compliment the existing architecture, while transforming the existing facilities and site into a modern and sophisticated campus. The “Front of Campus” view, seen upon approach from the main entry drive, firmly establishes a “Front Door” to the campus which will serve as a main entry point into the school and tie the campus together in such a way that will allow for an increase in campus security.
Full interior design services were provided including design, selection, procurement and installation administration of all furniture, fixtures, and equipment for the new and renovated buildings, including the new Performing Arts portion.
