Designed to replace an existing outdated facility, this project includes two separate buildings and site work.  Ellis, Ricket conducted an interactive design workshop at the beginning of this project to develop a program.  The Owner was highly involved through the entire design process, resulting in a project uniquely suited to their needs.  Design considerations included upgrading the board offices to modern standards and fulfilling an unmet need for a school bus maintenance facility.


New Construction Features:  Funded with ESPLOST revenues, the complex consists of a new administrative building, new bus barn, retrofit metal roof, and extensive bus parking areas.


The Board office building uses a wood frame, brick veneer, and metal roof system.  The Bus Barn uses a combination CMU and manufactured metal building system.
