Lovett Upper School
Lovett selected Carter to manage the design and construction process for a new 120,000-square-foot building located in the heart of campus. Carter worked with the project team and school community to implement a plan for development of the new building, while providing for the safety of students and maintaining campus circulation.
The new Upper School features state-of-the art classrooms and science laboratories, including ecology, physics and chemistry labs. A few of the features include a full gymnasium with second-level running track, campus bookstore, Headmaster and Dean of Students offices, and meeting rooms that provide space for multiple school functions. Carter guided the owner and project team through a thorough value analysis process to keep the project within budget, while meeting the school’s space requirements and quality objectives. The project was constructed over the course of one academic year, with significant cost savings.
