LGA is currently in the Construction Administration phase on the new 750 student freshman academy in Jefferson County. The new academy is scheduled for completion in late Spring of 2013 with occupancy for Fall 2013. Funding has also been approved for a major renovation/addition at the existing high school. Preliminary plans and budgets have been developed.
LGA is nearing the end of completion of the Schematic Design phase for a new 1,000 student comprehensive high school for Alcoa City Schools. The school will be located adjacent to the existing high school. Long range plans call for the creation of an intermediate school at the existing middle school with the middle school slated to occupy the existing high school. This would give Alcoa City Schools system-wide room for anticipated growth.
This month, Chancellor Jimmy Cheek and several University of Tennessee officials cut the ribbon on the new 98,000 s.f. University of Tennessee Student Health Center facility on the Knoxville campus. The new facility is designed to meet the current and future healthcare needs for the student and faculty for years to come. Combining primary care, mental health services and health-related education services into one location was critical for the success of this project. The new facility, located adjacent to Stokley Athletic Center and the Thornton Athletics facility (another LGA project) is designed with an exterior skin of brick and precast concrete veneer, aluminum panels and high efficiency low-e glazing. The design incorporates numerous energy saving principals and is on track to receive "LEED Silver" certification from the United States Green Building Council.
Other members of the team include DIA of Knoxville.
