Main Campus Renovation 2001
Alamo Architects has been retained by Northside ISD to execute three major projects on the John Jay campus over the last eight years.   The first project consisted of 60,000 s.f. of new construction in five separate additions to the existing campus. Among the aspects of this project were a new library, new band hall, new dance studio, new little theater, and new language laboratories. New facilities were designed to infuse new life into the campus by introducing lively colored patterned exteriors and by introducing natural light through raised ceiling areas in the interior public spaces and library. The goal of the project was to provide the students at Jay with a facility that exceeds their functional needs and inspires them to become informed and educated citizens.

Science Academy 2005
In 2004 we were asked to return to Jay High School to renovate 30,000 s.f. of the original main building into the district’s magnet science academy. This project renovated the existing space into 14 state of the art science labs and support spaces.

Classroom Addition, Athletic Renovations 2007
The 2007 NISD Bond Program dictated additional work at the Jay campus.  This work consisted of an 18 classroom addition; which includes general classrooms, a large group instructional room, art and computer classrooms.  The project includes an addition and renovation of the Boys and PE Athletic areas, additional HVAC replacement in the existing building and a new Central Plant
