FAIRMONT — After more than two years of extensive, ongoing renovations, Fairmont Senior High School is almost ready to unveil its improvements.

After the school bond was passed in 2010, funds were dedicated to a list of upgrades needed by the school.

“This is the third school year that we have endured renovations,” FSHS Principal Chad Norman said. “Work has been completed throughout the school year and during the summer months. It’s been around the clock.”

City Construction has been the general contractor for the project which included transforming the former courtyard area into a state-of-the-art media center and several other upgrades such as new HVAC, windows and electrical systems, sprinklers, covered walkways, masonry restoration, resurfaced floors, updated restrooms, new water fountains and more.
