This project involved preconstruction and construction services for strategic upgrades and expansion of K-12 classrooms, administrative and staff offices, science and laboratory facilities, performing arts space, music and fine arts facilities. Completed in the summer of 1996, the project was accomplished in two phases: interior renovation of existing spaces and new construction.

The renovation aspects of the project included renovation of the existing Science Facility to accommodate state of the art biology, physics and chemistry laboratories and lecture rooms. Another component of the renovation consisted of interior improvements to office areas and other specialized spaces such as an intimate theater, a music room and dance studio, dark room, bookstore and library.

New construction included a second floor addition to house new classrooms and laboratories as well as an infill addition of two ground floor bays of the existing central building to house Admissions and College Counseling functions. This new two-story structure was built between an existing swimming pool and auditorium (both in use during construction). Close coordination with School Administration and Staff to mitigate impacts to existing school operations was essential to making this a successful project.
