FLOYD CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL WAS AWARDED THE 2011 ARCHITECTURAL PORTFOLIO AWARD
Floyd Central High School’s renovation / addition project included a 3 phases building plan to bring this facility up to current standards and to accommodate population growth.
The main entrance was relocated to provide a secure entry point to the school which directs visitors to an atrium leading to all areas of the building. New administration offices were built to allow for much needed space for counselors and administrators.
Included was a complete rework of the academic areas to join junior/senior high areas together and increase classroom size from a 740 square foot average to a 900+ square foot average. Additions of classrooms, band, and orchestra areas allow for spaces that were outgrown.
Natural Daylighting was installed throughout. Ceilings were raised and sections of the roof were removed to reveal skylights throughout the halls. A hallway, dubbed the spine, filled with light from a line of windows is the new commons area, which connects the academic wings to the arts and physical education areas. Windows were installed in classrooms bringing more natural light into the building.
Seven additional science labs were created within the building to meet academic requirements. The new library and media center offers up-to-date technology in the use of computers for student projects and research. Public use spaces were established off of the spine to allow for secure after hours access by the public. The goal to bring Floyd High School into the 21st Century was accomplished
