GHS Campus

Transforming a Campus

Carroll Daniel has partnered with Gainesville High School on a multi-phase expansion and renovation of the school’s campus – consolidating the 13-building campus into 5 facilities. The high school, founded in 1892, spans 345,472 SF, and Carroll Daniel Construction was honored to manage and construct this massive campus revitalization.

Advanced Studies Building

The first phase of GHS’s consolidation that our project team completed was the construction of a new Advanced Studies Center located at the entrance of the school. The new two-story, 43,100 SF building houses 12 science labs and is primarily dedicated to the school’s career, technology, agriculture, and education programs, as well as higher-level classes such as AP Biology and AP Chemistry.

The building also includes an administrative suite and a work-based learning suite. Made of glass, the main corridor on the first floor allows a look into the labs.
