Welp..I guess It's Happening
E-SPLOST V Project: RFQu #17-752-029 Professional Architectural and Engineering Services for Chamblee Charter High School

Agenda items from Monday, July 10th Board of Education Meeting Work Session:


The anticipated scope of this project is the design of a building addition, with accompanying modifications to the school’s core areas – media center, kitchen and cafeteria – to handle increased occupancy. A net addition of 30 Instructional units is required. Accompanying parking area additions, possibly requiring a parking garage, are also included in this scope. A preliminary site study recommended a three-story, 40,800 square foot addition located between the current classroom wing and the auditorium; however, the selected Architect/Engineer is encouraged to consider other configurations as well. The scope of this project also includes design for the installation of synthetic turf at the football practice field. This is not intended to be an all-inclusive list of the scope of work.

Also, the agenda item to convert current Cross Keys HS to a Middle School.  So where is the new Cross Keys High School going to be located?


The anticipated scope of this project is the design of an addition and modifications to the existing Cross Keys High School in order to convert it for use as a middle school. The net addition of IU’s necessary is 22. Accompanying parking area modifications are included in this scope. Also included in this project’s scope are the design of a security vestibule at the main building entrance, and a sprinkler system for the entire facility.

A preliminary site study recommended a single story, 12,000 square foot, 10 classroom addition, as well as extensive remodeling of the existing building to convert high school career tech labs into standard middle school classrooms. The District may choose to retain the career tech labs and construct a larger, two story addition to accommodate the middle school conversion.
