The Fulton County Schools Administrative Offices project is a complete renovation of 160,000 square feet of office space in Sandy Springs, Georgia. The $18.5 million project was completed in just over 6 months and will consolidate 6+ locations of Fulton County Schools administrative functions into two buildings.
The Administration building scope included demolition and fit out of 6 floors of office space. Scopes of work included all new HVAC equipment, electrical service, and a complete elevator modernization, along with the extension of an existing fire service to two additional floors. Structural strengthening of concrete beams and columns were completed to allow for the installation of file systems on elevated slabs. A new entrance canopy, exterior mechanical yard, complete parking lot resurfacing, new parking lot lighting, and parking lot access controls were installed. A data center on the first floor will serve as the hub for Fulton County School’s IT function.
The Learning Center building scope included partial interior demolition and renovation of 3 office floors. Existing mechanical systems were reconfigured for a new office layout. New electrical service was provided. The building will house Fulton Schools’ boardroom and superintendent’s office, as well as training space for its staff. The building’s new occupancy requires additional parking capacity. With limited space onsite, a new surface parking lot will be constructed over a state waterway and will require a 15+ foot tall retaining wall and underground storm water detention system.
