Campus Construction & Expansion Update

September 02, 2015
By Tate's School

Tate’s School‘s Executive Management Team is pleased to announce that after a lengthy selection process, Merit Construction has been selected to build our new 9,000+ square foot Athletic & Dining Hall Facility. “I am enthusiastic about working with Merit due to their extensive experience and expertise in education-related construction”, said Joe Tate, Director of New Development. “Barry Byrd Architecture has done an amazing job designing the building which will resemble a Kentucky horse stable.”  The facility will include a stage for theatrical productions, an indoor Gym for P.E. and sports, a dining area and a kitchen where nutritionally-sound meals will be served daily.

Some of the utility infrastructure was completed this week with the installation of a water supply line that will service the new building and the installation of a fire hydrant that will service our expanding middle school campus. The official groundbreaking will be announced in the coming weeks and we will do our best to ensure that our expansion includes unique opportunities for student learning.

Part of our expansion also includes the installation of a dedicated high speed fiber Internet upgrade as well as a new campus-wide phone and communications system.  All classrooms and offices will benefit from this upgrade which should be completed within the next few weeks

Thank you for your support as we embark on an exciting new chapter at Tate’s.
