Project Spotlight: Lowrance Paisley Magnet School

Geo-Hydro is currently wrapping up our work for the construction of Lowrance Paisley Magnet School, a new Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools public school in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Lowrance Paisley Magnet School will serve as a joint middle school and high school. It will replace two current schools, Lowrance Middle School and Paisley IB Magnet School, housing them both in the same building.

Lowrance Paisley Magnet School is the first project to be constructed from the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools $350 million bond referendum approved in 2016. The $47 million-dollar school will encompass 224,000 square-feet. It will consist of three-story classroom wings and a two-story entrance as well as two gymnasiums, two dining areas, and a media center.

Geo-Hydro’s Greensboro team began work on Lowrance Paisley Magnet School in 2016 with geotechnical engineering services. Our team members worked diligently and successfully overcame significant subsurface challenges at the project site.

Geo-Hydro continued our work on the project with construction materials testing/special inspections once the school’s construction commenced in 2017. Our team has done exceptional work to help the project meet its schedule despite a very rainy construction season. We will finish our materials testing and special inspections work as construction is completed for the fall 2019 school term.

Due to our efforts on this project and commitment to client service, Geo-Hydro has been selected for additional projects with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. We are proud to continue this relationship building schools for the future!
