Central High School, Bibb County School District

Central High School is a new, comprehensive high school which replaced an existing high school adjacent to a new site.  The facility accommodates 1,000 students but can be expanded to 1,200 without increase of support facilities such as Media Center, Food Service, Gym, etc.  The project achieved LEED Silver.


One of the design challenges was to allow phased construction in order for the existing school to continue to operate.  A limited site dictated a two story solution for classrooms with the remainder being single level.  The new gymnasium had early occupancy in order for the existing gym to be demolished.  The building was completed in May which allowed equipment to be relocated from the existing building.  Upon completion, the old building was demolished to accommodate new facility and visitor parking.
