MAPP Construction LLC of Baton Rouge has recently been awarded a $45.9 million project for the expansion and renovation project at Baton Rouge Magnet High School.
Chenevert Architects/Remson Haley Herpin Architects, A Joint Venture, are the architect of record for the project.
The scope of the project includes the demolition of 75 percent of the 17-acre, mid-city site; whole building demolition; and selective demolition of the original historic 110,000-sq-ft school building.
Exterior work of the existing appearance involves a major masonry envelope restoration, window replacement and replication, and live oak tree preservation.
The new construction is 220,000 sq ft of modern aesthetic that will comfortably contrast and complement the almost century-old, original Baton Rouge High School Neo-gothic building.
Construction began in early August, and an aggressive schedule predicts completion before the 2012-2013 school year.
