(August 19, 2019) ATLANTA, GA – Winter Construction has begun the renovation of Joseph Humphries Elementary School, a school in the South Atlanta cluster of Atlanta Public Schools. Winter will build a new addition for the school and upgrade the existing building’s roof, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as making many other improvements.

Winter’s renovation and addition will provide 62,497 square feet of updated educational space. The new addition is 10,400 square feet, and it will feature a STEM lab as well as six new classrooms and new administrative offices. Winter will also update the storm and sanitary drainage on the school grounds, which will include installing an underground stormwater detention basin.

Carrie Campbell, Director of Operations for Winter, said, “We’re honored to be selected for this renovation and addition. The job is special to us because in past years we built an addition at Humphries Elementary, and we have completed projects at the high school and the middle school in Atlanta Public Schools’ South Atlanta cluster.”

Winter has completed 13 projects in the past 15 years for Atlanta Public Schools.
