Atlanta, Georgia

GMC worked with Atlanta Public Schools to provide professional services for the renovations on Hutchinson Elementary School, a PK-5 model.

Once the needs were documented and prioritized, the design team worked with Atlanta Public Schools Facilities Department (APS), the principal and the Design Committee to address them to the greatest extent possible within the project budget.

The scope of work included new roofing systems for the entire school, the addition of a secure entry vestibule, redesign of the administration areas, reallocation of spaces, ADA and Life Safety upgrades, as well as new doors, hardware, lighting and finishes. GMC collaborated with the Construction Manager at Risk, Balfour Beatty Construction, to keep the project in budget and used their experience with the Georgia DOE and City of Atlanta to expedite plan review and approval to complete the project on schedule.

GMC provided architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, and Construction Administration services for the project.
