A New Nest for the Howard Bishop Hawks

Originally built in 1962, Howard Bishop Middle School is undergoing a complete design overhaul and transformation. The Redesign and Redevelopment of this approximately eight (8) acre campus, includes the demolition of 11 Classroom Buildings, including the outdated Technology Labs and Computer Skills Labs, the kitchen and Cafetorium Building, and all of the restroom facilities for a total of 18 buildings on campus. Demolition and abandonment of the existing utilities has taken place to make way for a safer and more technologically advanced experience for the faculty and students upon their return.

Howard Bishop’s extensive redesign includes the construction of a highly efficient T- shaped, 2-story classroom wing that will provide 32 new classrooms, two (2) new 1-story Science classrooms/labs, two (2) new Technology/Business Labs, a new and much larger Cafetorium with new band and choral facilities included in its adjacencies. Demolition and the construction of a new Gymnasium is also currently being considered. This project will also involve extensive renovations to buildings not selected for demolition, remodeling seven existing classrooms, the Administration Building, and the Media Center.

The center of campus will become a spacious event space and gathering place for students with a modern design focused on safety and function.  The entire campus is being refreshed with new walkways and green space, paying special attention to maintaining as many of the existing trees as possible.

The updated site plan includes new student carpool/drop-off lanes, as well as new parking areas. Improved and expanded stormwater retention areas will improve flooding issues that plagued the campus. Existing athletic fields and the track are being considered for redesigned and/or updating through the Wild Spaces Public Places Program with the City of Gainesville.
