Saunders was the general contractor responsible for expanding the Prairie View High School Commons area, covering 5,300 square feet of space.
The renovation includes: a secure vestibule, security office/desk, SRO office/desk, additional restrooms, updated courtyard, and gym cooling upgrade.
The additional commons space is intended for students to eat lunch, study, or meet with friends. The interior functions as a multi-use area to provide safe, indoor space with student seating. The existing courtyard was demoed and replaced with a new outdoor courtyard designed to serve as a welcoming entrance to the school and serve to direct the flow of foot traffic better. Thee air handling unit was upgraded in the main gymnasium and 12 destratification fans were added. The auxiliary gym also received two new exhaust fans.
