RK Redding Construction, who has headed up projects within the Polk School District for the past several years, announced that the Fine Arts wing at Cedartown High School is a statewide award winner.

From the RK Redding Facebook post:

The Cedartown High School Fine Arts Addition won first place in the 2021 AGC Build Georgia Awards! This project was long-awaited for the students and faculty of Polk County School District and we are honored to have had the opportunity to bring it to life.

Contributions from organizations like the W.D. Trippe Foundation that helped with the funding and SPLOST Dollars brought the nearly two-decade long wait for the project to a conclusion with the opening of the facility in late 2020.

All told, it cost $7.1 million to construct the fine arts wing. For that cost, students now have the new theater – the crown jewel of the project – and the Cedartown High School band got a new room to gather and play together as well. A grand entryway that ties the facility to the school. Alongside that are new changing rooms and green rooms for boys and girls, and classroom space.

Elevators were even installed to make it easier to transport equipment, props, and instruments from areas around the facility and outside for the marching band for home football games. There’s also a gallery space overlooking Cedartown Memorial Stadium that provides a place to hang student artwork in shows as well.

AGC Georgia members participate in the prestigious AGC Build Georgia Awards competition to celebrate their firm and projects demonstrating construction excellence. Winning projects represent the best the construction industry has to offer by both general contractors and specialty contractors.
