Springfield High SchoolClick image to view larger
The original Springfield High School was built back in the early 80's and next to the high school sat another building called the Career Technical Building which was built by the state sometime in the early '70's. The school needed an overall facelift along with additional classrooms, science labs, an auditorium for both school and community events, as well as a new practice gymnasium. Our goal was to tie in both buildings so that students were not exposed to the outside when traveling from the original high school over to the career technical center and to keep the project within a budget set forth by the Robertson County Commission.
Hewlett Spencer was engaged by the Robertson County Board of Education to develop a plan for the addition and renovation project. After reviewing scenarios that derived from numerous meetings regarding a possible solution, a plan was set into motion that would accomplish all the program goals of the school officials and a Guaranteed Maximum Price was established and approved for the project. It consisted of a new two-story addition with 19 classrooms to include new science labs, computer labs, teacher work areas, a cosmotology lab, a choir room, and a 500 seat auditorium complete with full stage with green rooms and dressing rooms. This new addition connects the original high school to the existing CTC building. The entire original SHS got a complete overhaul including new ceiling tile, paint, and in some areas new flooring. The cafeteria was expanded, the locker rooms were renovated and we also added a new practice gym complete with varsity locker rooms for both football and basketball.
The students moved into the new addition in August of 2008 and the overall project was completed in December of the same year. Hewlett Spencer was able to complete the project ahead of schedule and with substantial savings returned to the taxpayers of Robertson County.
