• Claremont Middle School
    New Kitchen and Cafeteria

    Aerial Photograph Project Site - Claremont MS


    This project originated after a fire burned out the existing Claremont Middle School Cafeteria in February 2015. The cafeteria reconstruction, to be paid for by insurance reimbursement, was an opportunity for the school to envision further improvements to their campus.


    Various site layout options were explored over the past year to determine a comprehensive site plan that could address some of the existing site deficiencies as well as the intended future mission or direction of the Claremont Middle School.


    The upcoming Turf Field Improvement project and Bond project funding, can thus be combined with the cafeteria insurance money, and support a physical transformation of the campus.


    The work is focused in the following areas:

    • New multi-purpose building to house the functions of the kitchen, cafeteria, stage and performance space, as well as an athletic court
    • Renovations in building C to accommodate three SDC classrooms with accessible compliant path of travel and compliant restrooms
    • Evaluation and proposed modifications to the existing fire alarm detection within Bldg C
    • Site work, which will include demolition of existing cafeteria; and removal of existing portables Accessible Path-of-Travel to Bldg C, to new MP Bldg, to parking, etc. as required; Landscaping reorganization and minimum improvements surrounding new work
    • Artificial turf field
