The project consisted of extensive interior and exterior renovation work and a new addition. A major part of the scope included the installation of new building systems: mechanical, electrical and plumbing, an updated security system and new life safety systems. The renovations also included numerous interior reconfigurations to maximize the usefulness of the space. New classrooms and offices were added along with improved layouts for the common areas, cafeteria and library. The building received new entranceways, windows, an elevator and millwork. Site work and landscaping were also included within the project scope.
