Renovations ahead of schedule in Forsyth County schools
By: Kayla Robins FORSYTH COUNTY -- Though major additions to school campuses around Forsyth County have been completed, multiple projects continue to be underway, with some ahead of schedule. With new construction at North Forsyth, Forsyth Central and South Forsyth high schools finished, they are now undergoing renovation projects, said Tom Wening, director of construction for Forsyth County Schools. North will see upgrades to classrooms and the band and choral rooms. Wening said though the projected completion date is August 2017, “we’re well on our way to turning this over at winter break.” Central’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) labs, as well as classrooms and the culinary wing at South, will be renovated with a completion date of August 2017. Lambert High School’s projects — the addition of 19 classrooms and a band room and renovations to the engineering and health labs — are “substantially complete.” While existing high schools are receiving makeovers, other crews are working to build a new campus from the ground up. Denmark High School, which is being constructed on Mullinax Road in southwest Forsyth, has foundations being placed, Wening said. The school is slated to open in fall 2018. “Getting out of the ground,” Wening said, “is always the most risky.”
