Midtown High School

Innovative solutions to unique structural challenges

Atlanta, Georgia

Client: Cooper Carry


Space was limited for the expansion of this historic school located in Atlanta’s bustling and trendy Midtown district.


Willett Engineering was presented with this challenge: to design a new classroom building which would bridge 30 feet over the underlying sewer system.


With ingenuity and thorough communication with architects and contractors, the Willett team pulled off this engineering feat with finesse. The result is a four-story addition with 18 new classrooms and a beautiful new terrace entrance.


Total construction cost: $17 million

A modern addition to a historic campus.
