A heavy emphasis was also placed on safety, as the campus remained occupied during construction.
The Dunbar High School project consisted of the demolition of approximately 130,000 square feet of existing structure on the campus, as well as 170,000 square feet of new construction. Two existing buildings on campus received extensive renovations, totaling 35,000 square feet. Suffolk’s team implemented an outreach program to engage the local subcontractors and workforce on the project.
The School District originally wanted to demolish the entire building, but Suffolk suggested a conversion/renovation, saving a significant amount of money for the district. Suffolk converted the old cafeteria into a basketball court and the kitchen facility into a wrestling room with padding. Suffolk also remodeled the locker rooms and provided new weightlifting equipment. This project also included new office spaces and projection capabilities in all rooms.
