Bond money improvements at high schools

By Lisa Brody


Birmingham Public Schools held groundbreakings at both of their high schools on Tuesday, November 2, as part of the improvements from their 2020 $195-million bond program.


The district kicked off improvements as part of that bond program with formal groundbreakings that will update and upgrade the Seaholm High School auxiliary gymnasium and the stadium building at Groves High School.


Birmingham Public Schools voters passed a $195-million bond program on March 10, 2020, with $70 million of that allocated toward auxiliary gyms; main office additions; updated dance and weight rooms, theater seating, restrooms, and athletic fields; and infrastructure improvements to HVAC equipment, security systems, and generators in both high schools.


“We’re excited to begin transforming our two district high schools by formally breaking ground on the Seaholm auxiliary gym and Groves stadium buildings,” says Dr. Embekka Roberson, Birmingham Public Schools Superintendent. “These bond improvements will allow us to provide an exceptional learning and athletic environment for our students and for the greater community.”


Southfield-based Barton Malow Builders will serve as the construction manager on all high school work, which will take a phased approach over the next six years, the district said. Key partners on the project include Plante Moran Cresa and Integrated Design Solutions.
