The W.T. White community welcomed construction updates at a recent community meeting that detailed improvements coming to the north Dallas campus. Go here to download a list of improvements and a timeline.
About 30 parents, community members and staff listened intently as a representative for WRA Architects shared details of plans for an athletics wing with new locker rooms, and a fine arts addition with more space for band, choir, orchestra and dance programs that will do double duty as a storm shelter. The architect's drawings are available here.
The list of renovations to the existing building includes roofing, new tile and flooring in existing classrooms, and paint, new seats and upgrades to lights, sound and ceiling tiles in the auditorium. A reconfiguration of existing space will also make way for a new blackbox theater.
The proposed timeframe for the improvements calls for work to begin in October 2018 with completion expected in the fall of 2020.
