(August 5, 2015) ATLANTA, GA – The Cobb County School District has selected Winter Construction to build a new 90,000-square-foot gymnasium and theater building at Pope High School.
The complete scope of the project, in addition to the new building and associated site work, includes renovation work on the existing high school building and its associated athletic facilities. Specifically, Winter Construction will install new flooring throughout the existing high school, renovate the football, baseball, and softball amenities, and relocate the tennis courts, among other updates to the campus.
The school will remain in use during the construction, which is tentatively scheduled to start in January 2016 and to conclude in July 2017. Cobb County School District is funding the project through a special purpose local option sales tax (SPLOST) that was approved by voters in 2013.
Pope High School opened in 1987. In 2014, the school had an enrollment of 1,924 students.
The architect of record for the project is CDH Partners.
