George Washington Carver School of Arts
Formerly known as America’s Choice High School, the Sacramento City Unified School District developed a 13-acre vacant lot for this 45,808-square-foot new 500 student high school, built by McCarthy's public school construction team. This new school consisted of the construction of eight separate buildings including four classroom buildings, one library and science building, two restroom buildings and one multipurpose building. The project also included construction of a sports field and outdoor amphitheater. The new America’s Choice High School serves a critical function to the Sacramento community.
There were a number of challenging aspects to this project including cost, complex wood framing and barrel roofs. These challenges were overcome by a collaborative lease-leaseback approach. McCarthy substantially completed the project 45 days early.
