$9.5 Million in Building Permits<br>Filed for St. Mary's School
Building permits for $9 million and $500,000 for construction at St. Mary's Episcopal School have been filed with the city-county Department of Construction Code Enforcement.
A $9 million permit is for construction of the Windland Smith Rice Building for middle-school students, said Albert Throckmorton, assistant head of school.
Throckmorton said St. Mary's is demolishing the upper-school library, which will serve as the site for the Windland Smith Rice Building. The middle- and upper-school campus accommodates fifth through 12th graders and is at the southeast corner of Walnut Grove Road and Perkins Road Extended. The lower school is at the northwest corner of Walnut Grove and North Perkins Road.
The $12 million Windland Rice Smith middle school building is part of Phase III of the capital campaign, according to the school's Web site. Of that, $5 million was given by FedEx founder Frederick W. Smith's family. The building is named in memory of Smith's daughter, Windland "Wendy" Rice Smith, a St. Mary's alumna.
A $500,000 permit is for code improvements and renovations to the Taylor Building, also on the school's upper- and middle-school campus.
Both projects should be wrapped up by fall 2008, Throckmorton said. The architect for the projects is Fleming Associates Architects PC and the contractor is Montgomery Martin Contractors LLC.
The construction is part of a $32 million capital campaign the school launched in 2003, according to the Web site.
