The new Garrard County High School is paving the way in Kentucky by providing students with a State of the Art Learning Facility.  The new school was built in two phases.  Phase "A" consist of the school and site work.  One of the unique features in the school is that the heating and cooling system along with the lights throughout the facility are all controlled by computer.  Also gone are the days of chalkboards, they have been replaced with dry erase boards and smart boards.  There are so many more extras such as; an art room which is equipped with a kiln for pottery and a technical lab where students can study engineering and computer repair.

 While Phase "B" contained the construction of the Athletic Field House, which houses the coaches' offices, a weight room as well as the locker room.  There is the Greenhouse with an outside science lab, rain garden, courtyard, amphitheater and a shelter for outdoor classes. Also included in Phase B was the construction of the Football, Baseball and Soccer Fields.

Branscum Construction Company's dedication to excellence has provided Garrard County a "Landmark Project" that we are all can be very proud of.   The Branscum Team that worked on this remarkable new learning facility was Project Manager Jeff Cook, CM Senior Superintendent Terry Loy, and GC Superintendent Richard Pitman.  Branscum Construction was the Construction Manager and the architect was Ross-Tarrant for the new Garrard County High School.
