Garrard County High School
Lancaster, KY
The Garrard County Board of Education was faced with a steadily growing school district in its already overcrowded schools.  Therefore, a decision was made to build a new high school and to redistribute its student population to lessen the overcrowding in all of the schools.  An 84-acre location was selected and site work began in July of 2007.  Due to the size of the project, the construction of the new facility was divided into two phases.  Phase "A" consisted of the 122,000 square foot main body of the high school which included classrooms to house over 800 students and the common space to accommodate 1,000 people.  Phase "B" of the construction includes athletic offices, field, and outdoor classes.  The new high school is equipped with the latest technological advancements.  The entire school's heating, cooling and lighting systems are controlled by one central computer.  Classrooms are outfitted with smart boards to help students acquire the skills they will need to go on to college or to be workforce ready. 
Branscum continues to deliver quality landmark projects that communities and future generations of students will be proud of.

Branscum Construction has been the recipient of numerous AGC "Build Kentucky" Awards in previous years.  The most recent projects have been 2009 for Russell County Auditorium and Natatorium in Russell Springs, KY and David L. Williams Southeastern Kentucky Agricultural & Expo Complex in Corbin, KY.  In 2008 for First Baptist Church in Russell Springs, KY and 2007 for Ransdell Chapel at Campbellsville University.
