The ABSS architect/designer selection process began last November when ABSS posted the RFQ (Request for Quotes) and scheduled school visits for early December. By the January 7, 2019 deadline, ABSS received 24 architect/designers submissions for renovation projects and 13 submissions for the new high school. The selection process also included two rounds of interviews with an internal committee and a stakeholder committee.

At the June 18, 2019 ABSS Board of Education Meeting, staff recommended Morris-Berg Architects from Charlotte do the renovations and additions for South Mebane Elementary School, Graham High School, and Cummings High School.

Morris-Berg Architects will provide the following services: sealed architectural, structural, M.E.P. and FP plans, sealed civil and landscape design, owner assistance with bidding, owner/contractor assistance with permits, and project observation during construction. The estimated design costs are as follows: South Mebane Elementary School for $585,000, Graham High School for $555,750, and Cummings High School for $765,000.

The ABSS Board of Education approved all staff recommendations for architect/designers for school bond projects.
