J.L. Mann High School Addition, Greenville County Schools
Turning an eye to the future of education, Greenville County Schools sought to build a STEM Learning community classroom building next to their existing high school to accommodate both capacity needs and the influx of students going into the STEM programs. Additionally, Greenville County Schools asked McMillan Pazdan Smith to convert one wing of the existing classroom building (which was traditionally double-loaded corridors) to an open concept, project-based learning community. By converting selected classroom demising walls into writeable / moveable partitions and opening other spaces into collaborative learning areas, our team successfully transitioned a traditional floor plan into a 62,000 SF vibrant, collaborative space that coincides with the STEM curriculum.
Projects included in the renovation / addition are:
- STEM Classroom Addition
- Converting existing classroom wings into STEM layouts
- New Tennis Courts
- Football Bleacher Addition
- Restroom Building
- Softball Press Box / Concession Building
- Track + Field Modifications
- Site Improvements
- Our design team also provided full architectural services in 2007 for the design of J.L. Mann’s 248,000 SF, two-story high school serving 1,500 students.
