Historic Schools Technical Assistance Consortium. Final Report.
Williams, Judith B.
This report documents the findings of an in-depth study of selected historic schools in the Columbus Public School district in an effort to demonstrate that the renovation of such buildings can achieve a high standard of educational adequacy for a cost that is less than new construction. It includes conceptual design solutions and a budget analysis of each of four schools (Avondale Elementary, Burroughs Elementary, Starling Middle, and East High). It presents conceptual floor plans for each building, showing how the program needs are met within the existing building plus new construction. It also contains architectural renderings to provide visualization of how the finished building could look, with examples of both exeterior and interior images. Also presented are the cost estimates for these conceptual plans, which demonstrated in all four cases that these results could be achieved at a cost that is less than the cost of demolishing the old and building new.
