The first step in the design process was to complete a new comprehensive building program; it is a result of tours and analysis of existing facilities, information gathered by BCA, and interviews with BCA executive committees, staff, and scholars. DDG’s civil and architecture team, with assistance from Multi-Studio, completed a comprehensive building program and design for Bayou Community Academy’s new school campus located on North Canal Boulevard in Thibodaux.
DDG’s civil team is working with local subs to provide survey, traffic, and geotechnical services. Additionally, the civil team developed a graceful site design that was careful to preserve historic buried artifacts, while our architecture team completed the design for the nearly 70,000 square-foot building. The new campus includes over 20 new classrooms, a cafetorium, high school regulation size gymnasium, administration suite, library, and multiple lab spaces.
DDG will continue to manage the project as it moves into construction in the next couple of months. DDG is assisting BCA with bidding and contracts, and construction administration through the completion of the campus. The construction cost is $20 million. This project is estimated to be completed in 2025.
