It’s back to school time, which means we’re happy to see the completion of some of our K-12 projects. Breedlove has been busy attending ribbon cuttings and putting the finishing touches on these projects:
Denmark High School – Forsyth County
This new facility is the largest high school in the State of Georgia. The 420,000 square-foot facility includes classrooms, science labs, computer labs, multipurpose spaces, administrative areas, a competition and auxiliary gymnasium, auditorium/theater, media center, kitchen, cafeteria, and a 3,000 square-foot Veterinary Science building. The site also includes a renovated wet-pond which doubles as both a stormwater management basin and a hands-on learning opportunity for agricultural and science-based curriculum.
Athletic facilities include a multipurpose athletic stadium with track and field, stadium seating, and concession stands, a six-court tennis facility, practice field, soccer field, as well as baseball and softball fields.
Dove Creek Elementary School – Oconee County
This nearly 90,000 SF school has 48 classrooms to accommodate 750 students. Dove Creek was constructed on the west end of the county to help serve the population growth along the Hwy 316 and Hwy 78 corridors.
Oglethorpe Avenue Elementary School – Clarke County
At 122,000 square feet, it’s nearly twice as large as the old Oglethorpe, which was located on the same site. The new facility has 43 classrooms and other instructional spaces, up from 35 in the old school, and it’s built for an enrollment of approximately 675 students. The building includes a media center, three playgrounds – one specifically for special education students – and a STEM classroom. The site also utilizes a network of bio-retention facilities which helps clean and manage stormwater.
Pine Street Elementary School – Rockdale County
This new facility is situated on a 37-acre site. The two-story building has 53 classrooms, a media center, as well as specialized spaces for art, music, physical education, and computer science. The new school is designed for up to 900 students, and even includes an outdoor amphitheater. A unique seep-berm approach was utilized to protect a yellow river tributary, which wraps the property, from erosion and sediment pollution.
