Whitehall Elementary School: Anderson, SC

Whitehall Elementary School was originally constructed in 1969 and remained unaltered until 1977 when an addition was built on to the one story brick and stone building. As part of a $140 million bond referendum Whitehall Elementary School in Anderson District Five was one of the schools slated to receive much needed additions and renovations due to the population growth in the area.

The majority of construction activities took place during the school year and was completed in four phases. Precautions were observed to provide for the safety of children, staff, and parents.

Phase I of this project involved the installation of a new detention pond and storm drain inlets. A new fire protection line, fire hydrant, and fire line was installed on the west side of the existing school, as well as a new fire protection line and fire hydrant on the east side.

Phase II consisted of the addition of approximately 10,000 square feet in classrooms. The new classroom wing included a corridor connection to the existing building.

Phase III was comprised of 75,000 square feet of interior renovations to the new guidance area, health area, resource room, restrooms and administrative areas. A new parking lot was added and asphalt paving of the existing car loop at the front entrace. New asphalt paving and concrete paving was completed at the kitchen service area. New concrete sidewalks were also completed under the existing bus canopy and the existing bus loop repaved.

Phase IV work involved the renovation of overall existing school finishes.

This project was executed simultaneously with New Prospect Elementary School.
