An expanded and renovated Atlanta Public School that re-opened in the fall of 2015 after completing construction earned an Honor Award and recognition from the South Atlantic Chapter of the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA).
The renovated Ralph Bunche Middle School located in southwest Atlanta was honored at the organization’s annual banquet and awards ceremony held June 15, at the Carlos Center in Atlanta.
The annual CMAA South Atlantic Chapter Construction Management Project Achievement Awards program recognizes outstanding achievement in the practice of construction management. The awards program is designed to recognize and promote professionalism and excellence in the execution and management of the building construction industry.
Originally constructed in 1979, Bunche was extensively renovated and expanded including enclosing previously open classrooms, the construction of a new auditorium and gymnasium and additional building improvements designed to meet the current instructional needs of the district as part of a $32.9 million project, funded through SPLOST. The building was designed by Cooper Carry, Architects and built by J.E. Dunn Construction.
This is the sixth such award from CMAA to APS projects. It was among several other recognitions presented to APS by the organization for 2016 representing continuing industry acknowledgement of project achievements in the construction industry and the district’s Capital Improvement Program.
