Cave Spring High School Renovation and Expansion
The Roanoke County School Board on Sept. 27, 2018 accepted a bid from Avis Construction Co. for the expansion and renovation of Cave Spring High School. The board has awarded a contract to Avis in the amount of $35,035,000, pending final negotiations and legal review. This includes the base bid and alternates 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7.
In addition, the board has awarded a contract to Aries Building Systems, LLC in the amount of $1,425,381.24, pending final negotiations and legal review for modular classrooms that will be placed on the Cave Spring campus for the duration of the construction project.
The project will include an expansion of the front of the school and a significant renovation of the interior spaces including removing the original hexagon layout. New science classrooms will be constructed and new technology and other equipment will be installed throughout the facility. An entirely new media center will be built. The gym will be upgraded with new floors, bleachers and equipment. The auditorium also will be updated with new seats, carpet, sound system, lighting and curtains. The kitchen and cafeteria equipment will be updated. Initial construction is slated to begin in January 2019.
As part of this project, all students and staff will vacate the current high school building once construction begins. Students and staff in grades 10-12 will move into modular classrooms that will be located adjacent to the school. Students and staff in grade 9 will transition temporarily to Cave Spring Middle School. The project is anticipated to be completed by summer 2020.
