Erickson-Hall Construction has completed work at Hoover High School on new classrooms and a new parking lot.

The $6 million project entailed building a two-story, 30,000-square-foot classroom building with 18 classrooms, a science room and computer lab. Also, more than a dozen bungalow classrooms were demolished in order to grade and install a new parking lot.

During construction, which lasted three-months, portable classrooms were installed to accommodate teachers and students since the existing classrooms were demolished to make way for the new building. Once the new building was finished the portables were removed and teachers were moved into the new building.

Dave Koepcke at the architectural firm GKK Works designed the building. Also involved on the project were TMAD Taylor Gaines, structural engineer; Burkett & Wong Engineering, civil engineer; Turpin & Rattan, mechanical and electrical engineer; and Wimmer Yamada & Caughley were the landscape architects.

Subcontractors hired for this project included Precision Electric, DCC General Engineering Contractors, Johnson Finch & McClure Construction, A&S Flooring, Minshew Bros. Steel Construction, Strang Heating & Air Conditioning and Ranbar Plumbing.

The Erickson-Hall project team included Bill Grundman, construction manager; Brady Cahill, project manager; Zac Zander, project engineer; and Lance Osborn, superintendent.
