Ridge Spring-Monetta K-12 School
Ridge Spring-Monetta K-12 School was a three-phase project constructed on an occupied school campus for Aiken County Pubic School. H.G. Reynolds Company constructed the original Ridge Spring- Monetta High School in 1956 and, 60 years later, was re-hired to raze the existing high school and begin a two-phased construction of a new high school followed by a new elementary school. Our client desired a single campus K-12 school facility and new football, baseball, and softball facilities. Up until the completion of Phase Two, the Ridge Spring-Monetta high school and middle school baseball and softball fields lacked any site lighting, therefore unable to schedule games at night. This was a three-phased project built on an occupied school campus. Phase 1 was completed before 2017. H.G. Reynolds came on board in 2018 to construct the final 2 phases.
Phase 2 consisted of constructing a new 124,500 SF high school built onto and around the occupied middle school campus. The new construction included a two-story classroom wing, science labs, gymnasium, media center, administration area, elective classrooms, a band area, and complete high school athletic facilities. This phase was completed in February 2020.
Phase 3 started immediately upon completion of Phase 2 and consisted of a new 86,000 SF two-story elementary school that was an addition to the previous building. It included classrooms, a kitchen, a cafeteria, a media center, and a PE room. The old high school was demolished as a part of this phase.
