Prop. S Update: Hoover High Green Construction Program Building Underway

Hoover Construction
Demolition and grading are underway at Hoover High School as construction activities begin on the new Green Construction Program building. The $3.9M project will feature a modern, commercial woodshop set in an industrial arts classroom that is part of the high school’s new College Career and Technical Education Program. The 5,700-sq. ft. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-certified facility will serve as an educational lab, teaching students about renewable technologies in construction, including photovoltaic (solar) systems, renewable/recycled building products and energy efficiency. A state-of-the-art ventilation system will mitigate dust and noise while simultaneously supplying superior air quality in a shop environment. The project is scheduled to be completed by fall 2011.
