(February 7, 2017) ATLANTA, GA-Winter Construction has completed major additions and renovations at two Atlanta schools: Crawford Long Middle School and William Boyd Elementary School. Winter Construction’s completions represent its 13th and 14th projects for Atlanta Public Schools in a decade.
Winter’s renovation of William Boyd Elementary is a complete makeover of the school. This update
and transformation required the school’s students and staff to be accommodated elsewhere while
the work took place. The renovation relocated some exterior walls, reconfigured interior spaces
and classrooms, replaced all of the existing stairwells, and updated the school’s entrance.
At Crawford Long Middle School, Winter built a new administration wing, an auditorium building,
and a three-story addition to the existing classroom wing. Winter renovated the existing
gymnasium, converting the old stage into classrooms, refurbishing locker rooms and bathrooms,
refinishing the gym floor with new graphics, replacing the bleachers, and installing new gym
Winter also reconfigured Long Middle School’s entrance drive and drop-off area. The new
entrance, along with the newly built additions, give the school a great new look. Winter completed
its work while the school remained open.
Theondrae Reid served as project manager for Atlanta Public Schools on the Boyd Elementary
School project. “Winter Construction’s team at Boyd Elementary understood the needs of Atlanta
Public Schools. They worked hard to provide the best product to benefit the students, staff, and
Winter’s Director of Education, Carrie Campbell, says that Winter has an excellent track record in
K-12 school projects, often finishing ahead of schedule. “Our project teams at Winter are experts at
meeting construction deadlines centered around the school year,” said Campbell.
William Boyd Elementary reopened this in January in time for the second half of the school year.

occupied during construction, and achieved substantial completion last October. BRPH Architects
