Summary: On April 25th, the School Board agreed to move forward with the Red Hill Addition & Renovation project, scheduled to be complete and occupied in August 2021. Construction would begin in July of 2020. To ensure proper time for completion, design should begin in July of 2019. Phase 1 of the project, including classroom and media center modernization, were completed in 2016/17. This will be Phase 2 of the Red Hill upgrades, and will include a gym addition, site work, and renovations. The total budget for this phase of the project is 5.3M. The addition would add 6,300 square feet, comprised of a new gymnasium and support spaces such as staff offices and storage space. The current gym at Red Hill would be renovated, converting it to classroom space. Site work would include additional parking, site improvements, and outdoor learning areas. Existing spaces to be renovated include the cafeteria, bathrooms, hallways, and kitchen equipment. The Architectural/Engineering Selection Committee has selected an Architectural/Engineering firm from Albemarle County's term contracts. This selection is to be presented to the School Board.
Funding: Funding for the Red Hill Addition & Renovations, including design funding, is part of the 2019/2020 Capital Improvements Program.
