The architects for the Chamblee Charter HS building additions have provided two options for the 600 seat building additions.
DeKalb Schools is planning on constructing a 600-seat, three-story addition to Chamblee Charter High School (CCHS). The original anticipated start date was November of this year, but the school district is still figuring out how to go about doing this.
This project will not include any renovations or additions to existing art rooms, locker rooms, band room, choir room, gymnasium, fields, administrative offices, storage or any other core spaces or surrounding infrastructure.
The architect for CCHS, Hussey Gay Bell, has provided two options for the addition. One requires a land purchase and one does not. The CCHS Construction Advisory Committee (CAC) have been shown these options. The school district is exploring the process for going down each path.
I’ve never heard of anybody doing anything like Option 2. I thought people were kidding when I first heard about it.
OPTION 1 – Purchase land adjacent to the high school
OPTION 2 – Build a parking garage and put an elevated athletic field on top of the parking garage.
