Carroll Daniel Selected as General Contractor for the New Smyrna Elementary School
Carroll Daniel has been selected by the Cobb County School District as General Contractor for the new Smyrna Elementary School in downtown Smyrna, Georgia. Situated on an 18 acre site near Campbell High School and the Bellmont Hills redevelopment area, this new 153,000 SF, two story structure will house 61 instructional units and other associated support space. Improvements to the site will include a shared access road, playfields and play structures. Cunningham, Forehand, Matthews & Moore Architects, Inc. of Atlanta, Georgia is providing design and contract administration services for the project.
This SPLOST-funded facility was also designed to meet the standards for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, and will become the first LEED certified k-12 building in Cobb County. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED certification promotes environmentally sound, sustainable building practices during every step of the development process. Cobb County has partnered up with the International Knowledge and Research Center for Green Building at Southern Polytechnic State University for the LEED certification project.
Smyrna Elementary is the second school Carroll Daniel has been awarded a contract to construct for the Cobb County School District during 2011. Carroll Daniel is thrilled to be a part of this project and is eager to begin the construction process. The new facility is scheduled to open for the 2013-2014 school year and will serve over 900 students.
