DeKalb County School District’s efforts to improve its school buildings recently received recognition in the winter/spring 2017 edition of the Design Develop Construct (DDC) Journal, a construction trade publication for North America.

The two-page feature, titled “Building Top-Notch Schools,” provides readers a glimpse of how DCSD has effectively used E-SPLOST funds and other funding streams to complete and open two new elementary schools and a football stadium. In addition, the article shares how the district’s Capital Improvements Plan will inform and guide the construction of another seven elementary schools and a new middle school. Facilities prominently featured in the article include the new Peachcrest Elementary School and the new Fernbank Elementary School.

The DDC Journal is geared toward readers with a wealth of construction industry expertise including project managers, engineers, architects, planners, construction managers and general contractors.
