Franklin Community Middle School: Addition & Renovation

Franklin Community School Corporation

In response to overcrowding at several schools and in an effort to plan for long-range educational needs, the Franklin Community School Corporation’s Board of Trustees approved the existing reconfiguration of the current high school to a 7-8 Middle School.

To transform the existing high school to a middle school, Franklin Community hired Gibraltar Design to perform a complete mechanical and electrical re-work of the 45-year-old facility, a significant remodeling of the building’s interior as well as the addition of exploratory areas. Renovations include replacement of floor, wall and ceiling finishes throughout, new roofing on major portions of the building, complete overhaul of the auditorium, addition of air conditioning to gyms and auditorium spaces, replacement of lighting systems, upgrades to the PA system, replacement of all kitchen equipment, expansion of the kitchen and dining areas and repairs of the pool and pool floor.
