George Washington Carver High School
Salas O’Brien provided engineering services for the redesign of the historic George Washington Carver High School in Atlanta, Georgia. Our team’s work integrated new construction with the existing buildings and ensured efficient operations throughout.
George Washington Carver High School is a partner school of the Atlanta Public School System. As a partner school, Carver falls under the purview of Purpose Built Schools, an initiative to develop high-performing schools. The high school takes an educational approach that emphasizes science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM).
This project involved the redesign of the historic Carver High School campus to serve as the vocational technology transfer campus for the Atlanta Public School System. The George Washington Carver High School redesign was unusual in that it merged historic buildings with new constructions to form a unified campus. Accomplishing this goal required special care and expertise—and an ability to implement modern systems within older infrastructure as well as to give new and renovated buildings the feel of the charming Leete Hall model.
Salas O’Brien provided MEP and fire protection engineering as well as specialty lighting design services for the historic main campus building, Leete Hall, and the surrounding buildings.
The Salas O’Brien team brought extensive experience to the project, ensuring that the Carver campus redesign goals were met and the project was safely and successfully completed.
