Computer Animations for the interior OHS renovations – Phases One & Two
Orange High School Renovation Project
Phase one of the Orange High School classroom, media center and Commons (cafeteria) renovation project is taking place this summer. Phase one consists of the first floor educational wing. Phase two will begin next summer and cover the second floor, basement and Commons. The total cost of the two-phase project is estimated at $6.1 million.
Renovations during the Summer of 2023 include the classrooms, classroom hallways, academic wing, choir and band rooms, and the media center. At the end of phase one, construction will begin on a shaft for a new elevator. The elevator cab will be part of phase two.
The scope of work for phase one will include all new ceilings, new flooring and new walls with soundproofing; audio enhancement in every classroom, with four speakers per classroom; and a wireless access point for each classroom.
Every classroom will have new furniture for the 2023-2024 school year. The old furniture will either be auctioned off, recycled, or disposed of properly based on what is most financially beneficial for the district. New furniture will also be provided for the OHS media center, cafeteria, and teachers’ workroom, as well as the Brady Middle School cafeteria.
The Higley Co., of Cleveland is serving as the construction manager at-risk with ThenDesign Architecture of Willoughby handling the design work for the project.
