Grunley is renovating the existing 264,000-square foot, two-story Carl Sandburg Middle School. In addition, we will construct three additions totaling 6,000-square feet. This is the fifth project Grunley has performed for the Fairfax school system. Perkins Eastman serves as the Architect/Engineer.
The renovation includes enlarging classrooms and replacing windows, doors, finishes, and major building systems, including HVAC, plumbing, electrical and special systems. An automatic sprinkler system will be installed, and the gymnasium and cafeteria will be modernized.
The first addition will serve as the school’s new administrative offices and main entry. The second addition will feature a gymnasium lobby. The third addition will include a corridor linking the existing building circulation. All three additions will be concrete masonry units with brick façades to match the existing building architecture. Site work will consist of reconfiguring a kiss and ride lot, utility and pavement work and landscaping.
The Carl Sandburg Middle School houses 1,200 students and faculty. Students affected by the construction process will be moved into a series of mobile classrooms as the phasing of the project dictates.
