Two architectural firms have been approved for designing renovation projects at Bountiful and Viewmont high schools.

Valentiner & Associates was selected by the Davis School Board to design a $1.4 million project at Viewmont High School, which continues to experience increases in its student enrollment.The money will be spent to build a cafeteria addition, which will also serve as a physical-education room. The library and science departments are also in need of remodeling, said Bob Leonard, district director of new construction.

The architectural firm of Gillies, Stransky, Brems & Smith was chosen to design plans to remodel Bountiful High, which will be receiving an influx of students as a result of recent boundary changes to alleviate overcrowding in north Davis County.

Leonard said Bountiful needs a larger media center, additional parking and more classrooms.

There is currently about 13,000 square feet of space available inside the school.

"We're looking at a minimum of six classrooms (in that space). That should serve the needs of the projected growth.

The architects could be paid around 7 percent of the construction costs, Leonard said.

Construction is expected to get underway this summer and be completed by August 1992.

Financing is coming from part of a $40 million bond that voters passed in May 1990. The majority of the money - about $28.5 million is going toward a new high school in Layton. That school was designed by Valentiner & Associates.
