The Franklin (Tenn.) Special School District has begun construction of a nearly $30 million central office facility.
The Nashville Tennessean reports that the 38,000-square-foot, two-story facility will provide more multifunctional space for school board meetings and professional learning.
The building also will have an open-air courtyard and a 2,800-square-foot assembly space with integrated audiovisual technology. Every workspace will have direct access to natural lighting as well as a fully equipped kitchen and cafeteria space, loading and storage areas and a wellness area.
Construction at the site will repurpose an existing metal building into a 12,400-square-foot Facilities and Transportation Center.
The district serves 3,200 students in pre-K through eighth grade.
Wold Architects and Engineers is the architect, and Nabholz Construction is construction manager.
