A major reuse project by Bryan County Schools to provide a larger, centralized school district headquarters is expected to be completed in early July.
The future Black Creek school office complex at 8810 U.S. Hwy. 280 includes a former 1930s school building and a former 1960s school building that are being combined and renovated for a new base of operations of about 12,000 square feet.
Brad Anderson, assistant superintendant for administrative services, said the new facility will allow many school district workers to work in one location.
“We have about 25 school board employees scattered around Bryan County” at various school campuses, he said. “The existing school board headquarters (at 66 S. Industrial Blvd. in Pembroke) is about 3,000-3,500 square feet.”
The new facility will include offices for the superintendant and program directors, as well as space for training sessions and Bryan County Board of Education meetings. Once the complex opens, the existing headquarters will be used for the Bryan County Schools Transportation Department, Anderson said.
Construction on the new office complex began in late 2006. Built South Construction of Rincon is the contractor on the project.
