Breedlove Land Planning is pleased to have contributed to the Perkins + Will team for Benjamin E. Mays High School.  This Atlanta Public School won in the highest award catagory offered at the recent AIA Georgia design awards.  As the AIA webpage notes, “Mays is an example of how adapting and renovating the existing school can be as effective as completely demolishing and building a new building. This facility is transformational for the Mays community and has been accomplished at a much lower financial and environmental cost than building a whole new school.”Breedlove Land Planning provided all site design serices.  Congratulations to all the AIA award participants.  Click here to view photo from Architectural Record.
