JE Dunn Construction has broken ground on a sweeping modernization project for Tarpon Springs High School in Pinellas County, Florida. The $13.8-million overhaul involves new construction, the demolition or renovation of multiple structures, as well as site improvements throughout the campus. Noteworthy in the scope of services is the construction of a 12,261-square-foot building that will be the new home for Tarpon Springs High School’s widely acclaimed music program. A building formerly used for the program will be demolished.
Renovation activity will include, among other tasks, replacement of flooring and carpet, painting, new doors and hardware sets, canopy installations, new plumbing systems, improved acoustics, updated electrical power sources, new walls and ceilings, and upgraded HVAC systems.
Site improvements will provide courtyards and outdoor classrooms, new landscaping and sidewalks, storm water utility upgrades including improved storm water detention, and modified parking and drive lanes.
The project’s scheduled completion is July 31, 2019.
The architect of record is Rowe Architects of Tampa.
