Life School Waxahachie Progress

McCarthy Architecture is currently working with Life High School Waxahachie on an expansion of their campus into an existing adjacent building.  The existing building previously served as a crossfit gym and was mostly an open shell, giving the school a blank slate for the project.  This new facility will include classrooms, science and computer labs along with a reception area.  Construction is progressing along quickly, with current work is centered around the installation of interior floor finishes, lay-in ceilings, and tile along corridor and restroom walls.  Ultimately, this project will be the first phase of a multi-phase expansion.
