Kraus-Anderson has begun work on a $3.5 million addition and renovation of Jackson County Central High School, located at 1128 N. Highway in Jackson.
Designed by JLG Architects, the 7,500-square-foot project features a 5,250-square-foot Career and Technical Education addition and 2,300 square feet of updates to existing spaces.
The expansion includes a construction and automotive lab as well as updates to the existing metal lab. The newly-painted interior of the space will be finished with polished concrete floors and butcher block counters.
“The CTE addition is intended to enhance and expand the amazing work that is already being done at JCC schools,” said District Superintendent Barry Schmidt. “Our students will be able to explore different pathways, which will help them prepare for how classes and careers fit together as well as college. JCC is committed to helping students succeed in an ever-changing world.”
Construction is expected to be completed in November 2023.
