CORNING-PAINTED POST ASD

After decades of unsuccessful votes, HUNT worked with C-PP administrators to gain community approval of a $97.47 million facilities improvement project referendum that has consolidated two high schools into a single renovated facility at the former Corning East High School. The two middle schools were consolidated into a renovated facility formerly used as Corning West High School.


The district offices moved into one of the former middle schools, while the other middle school and administrative offices were repurposed in the community.


The projects included a total of $3 million in technology upgrades in the district’s six elementary and middle and high schools.  

 

The electrical engineering and information technology aspects of this project led HUNT to design overhead splice enclosure points and overhead lines including 1500’ of buried conduit, with pull boxes and concrete capping. This conduit facilitated the building’s fiber telecommunications service entrance. 


With a near doubling of the vehicular and pedestrian traffic at the “new and expanded” C-PP campus, HUNT’s landscape and site designers were charged with creating a new circulation pattern that reflected not only the increased traffic, but also addressed the changing community demographics and after-school programming now common at all school campuses.
