Fulton County approves $14.1 million contract for North Springs High School expansion

Fulton County, Georgia – On April 26, the Fulton County School Board approved a contract for over $14.1 million to start preparation work on a new building for North Springs High School. During a session on April 16, Chief Operations Officer Noel Maloof informed the board that Vertical Earth of Cumming had been chosen for the initial construction phase.

Maloof suggested adding a contingency fund of $1.4 million to the budget, bringing the total project expense to $15.6 million. He anticipated this phase would conclude by December.

This phase will involve tearing down several sports facilities, including a softball field, a competition field, a stadium, a practice field, and tennis courts, as well as adjacent parking areas, driveways, and other paved surfaces.

Additional project components comprise creating a new curb entrance on Trowbridge Road, constructing access driveways, erecting new retaining walls, relocating and setting up new utilities, laying new storm drainage pipes, and establishing an underground detention pond along with two above-ground sediment basins.

Maloof also mentioned that future phases would involve clearing and grading the land to set up a foundation pad for the new high school structure. He confirmed that the expenses for the proposed project are within the allocated budget.
