George Washington Carver High School attracts the best and the brightest of Philadelphia’s future engineers and scientists.
The Daniel J. Keating project added more than 40,000 square feet to the existing 60,000 and renovated the old brick building in a phased process that allowed classes to be held throughout construction.
The new library / media resource center and 200-seat cafeteria with full-service kitchen flank the entrance. The addition also contains a new gym, administrative offices, computer center, four engineering labs and eight science labs with epoxy countertops and a fully-vented hood system. The top-to-bottom renovation of the existing school also included installation of a new air-conditioning system and replacement of inefficient mechanical / electrical / heating systems.
