Bossier City, Louisiana
Airline High school classroom wings
Airline High School Improvements includes the addition of (2) three story classroom wings to replace two original and outdated 2 story classroom wings. Administration, School Entrance, Library and Student Commons areas received total renovation for the landmark Airline High School. Originally designed for approximately 1600 students but with a student population of 1987 and still growing, more instructional area was desperately needed.
The phased project encompasses 136,055 SF of new and renovated area with state of the art laboratories for Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Anatomy and Computers replacing the undersized and outdated laboratories.
The design of the building relates to the 1960’s style of the existing campus, while the new buildings have an identity of their own representing new technologies and the future of education. Remaining fully functional during the phased construction, demolition and renovation, the program manager, school staff & architect devised a plan and schedule to allow safety and full operation during the 26 month construction period.
Airline High School is located near major new developments in Bossier City, and the new appearance of the school builds further pride but also improves the aesthetics of the neighborhood.
