Barrow Elementary

Athens, Georgia

This project consisted of the renovation of the Historic Barrow Elementary School, which is located downtown adjacent to the University of Georgia Campus. The school has strong community involvement and a tremendous support system. The goal for the project was to bring the facilities up to the latest educational facility.

The site required some outside the box design due to its size and existing topography. The original structure was completely renovated and a new administration and entry were added. The main level connected to a new engineered steel frame two-story classroom building nestled between a new cafeteria and gymnasium. The latest technologies and systems were integrated into the 1920’s vintage construction resulting in a union of old and new that is virtually seamless.
