DCHS renovations remain on track

Renovations remain on track at Dougherty County High School.

Monday night, school board members approved two change orders for the renovations. The school will now have vinyl floor tiles, which will save the school system $191,000. Workers will also reroute some pipes, duct work and structural steel in the building. They're also relocating some air conditioning units from the roof.

"We've demolished some walls, and made some the smaller interior walls unstable,” said Bob Fowler, Facilities Services Director. “So we've ended up tearing down some larger sections of walls and replacing them. We had to add a door here or there because we changed the use of some of the rooms that were designed for something else because our curriculum has changed a little bit in that school."

Bob Fowler hopes the contractor will be finished with the work by May and plans to have furniture moved into the school around the same time. The renovated school is expected to open in August 2015.
