The project includes mechanical, plumbing, electrical, structural and architectural upgrades to Valley High School, which is approximately 300,000 sq ft. The work is being completed in four phases to allow students to attend classes while the renovation is being completed. The project adds 581 tubular day lighting units to bring in natural light to help students focus and learn more efficiently, while conserving energy.
