The recent renovation of Huddleston Elementary School led to the school being selected as a winner of a 2017 Alliant Build America Award.

Fayette County School System spokesperson Melinda Berry-Dreisbach said the entire Peachtree City school was renovated last summer using E-SPLOST (Education-Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) funds.

Renovations included replacement of the roof, heating ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system, flooring, and ceiling lights. Also, the exterior was updated and the entire building was painted, Berry-Dreisbach said.

The total renovation cost was $5.812 million, paid for by E-SPLOST, she added.

Carroll Daniel Construction was the vendor that headed the renovation project.
