MBS Architects and our design/build partner, Chris R. Sheridan & Company, were selected to design and construct this facility with a limited budget and a very tight timeframe for completion. Our firms were given an old strip shopping center (constructed on multiple floor levels) as a starting point. By careful planning, related both to design and constructibility, we were able to complete the project in only 14 weeks.
The Welcome Center resulted from the vision of new Bibb County School Superintendent Romain Dallemand to provide a "one-stop" location so that parents could complete each step required for school registration in a single visit. Phase One of the Welcome Center project includes 15 registrar offices; a number of supervisory offices; six classrooms to provide training and support to parents; a school nurse; and other support facilities. Phase Two of the project will include space for additional school personnel and personnel representing other state and local social service agencies.
