Forsyth Central High School will undergo a makeover this summer as part of a plan to develop a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, or STEM, Academy on its campus.
The Forsyth County Board of Education on Thursday approved an architect’s contract with Lindsey Pope Brayfield Clifford & Associates Inc.
The company, which has completed numerous projects at Central, will be compensated at 12 percent of the total construction cost, estimated at about $825,000.
Seven science classrooms will be renovated, similar to a recent project at South Forsyth High School, and an engineering/robotics lab will be added. The school’s band room will be moved to a larger location.
The design will be complete by April, with construction set to finish by the new school year in August.
