JE Dunn Construction, 2555 Cumberland Parkway SE in the Cumberland area, announced that a former middle school reopened this fall as the Atlanta Public Schools’ new Harper-Archer Elementary following a $10.715 million renovation of the facility.

Upgrading the building and adapting its spaces to serve elementary school students covered approximately 140,000 square feet and included reconfigurations of select classrooms to support elementary instructional programs which include 21st century and STEM instruction, select upgrades to interior finishes, modifications to HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems and skin improvements which include new storefront windows, painted façade and signage

Harper-Archer is part of the school system’s Douglass Cluster of geographically close elementary, middle and high schools.

Cooper Carry was project architect.
