The Asheville High School – Rehabilitation project consisted of a multi-faceted, multi-phase (three), multi-building (six) restoration and renovation of 165,000 sf of the Historic Asheville High School campus, while keeping it fully occupied and operational. The overall scope was to restore the shells of six buildings on the historic campus back to proper condition. Our first step was to get familiar with the building which required multiple meetings on-site, walking and inventorying every single aspect of each building with the design team. Vannoy, as the CMAR, worked hand-in-hand with the design team to find the best construction practice and determine the best practical way to complete each task while being good stewards of the client’s very tight budget. The Asheville High Main Building is the largest single building and scope includes replacing the nearly 100-year-old clay tile roof, re-pointing, cleaning & tucking the entire stone facade of the building, as well as replacing 2/3rds of the steel lintels embedded in the masonry veneer – all while keeping the school open and operational. Similar work is planned for the remaining buildings.
