Case Study

George Washington Carver High School

This 104,750-square-foot 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. Salas O’Brien provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering as well as specialty lighting design services for the historical main campus building, Leete Hall, and the surrounding buildings.

The 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. 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.
