Happy Holidays, students! Construction of the new classroom wing, cafeteria and gymnasium additions at Garrett Middle School is complete, although the contractor is still putting the finishing touches on the project. This renovation project, led by Perkins + Will Architects, was largely constructed while staff and students still utilized the existing school. The end result is a modern-day facelift for the original brick school building. Site improvements designed by Breedlove Land Planning include upgraded bus and parent circulation, emergency and service access, and new stormwater management facilities, including bioretention cells, to address stormwater runoff quality and quantity.
