Harrisonburg City School Board Building

This was a cooperative project involving the Harrisonburg Redevelopment and Housing Authority, the City of Harrisonburg, and the Harrisonburg City School Board. Located in downtown Harrisonburg, the project involved the creative reuse of an empty 1950’s era department store. The building was entirely gutted, exposing the still solid building structure. New walls, ceilings, floors, mechanical, plumbing, fire protection, and electrical systems were installed throughout. The exterior was also upgraded with a new insulated exterior finish, new windows, and a new membrane roof. The construction cost was a pleasing and affordable $81.48 /s.f.

Project Info

This project allowed the School Board to house their department offices under one roof.

The empty, eyesore in the middle of town that existed before this project was transformed into a “crown jewel” for the city. This re-use of old space allowed the accomplishment of this project for a much lower cost than building a new building.
