MCDONOUGH — Stockbridge High School will soon get a new multi-purpose facility.
The Henry County School Board unanimously voted to approve Lichty Commercial Construction to build the addition.
Lichty was one of eight bidders and the lowest at $4.9 million.
The project is part of the SPLOST V initiative to include a new multi-purpose facility at each of the district’s high schools.
This is the second upgrade Stockbridge High School will receive. In 2014, the school was upgraded with new classrooms and labs and another unit to house career technical programs. The media center and athletic fields were revamped in addition to the strings room funded with SPLOST IV monies.
Josh Malcom, Facilities and Maintenance executive director, noted the project will be the first time Henry County Schools works with Lichty Commercial Construction.
Malcolm said he and his staff pulled Lichty’s contractors qualification statement to look at past projects the company has done and get references.
“After looking at that we feel comfortable moving forward with them at this time,” Malcom said.
