On behalf of the Davie County Board of Education, our staff, and community, I want to thank New Atlantic Contracting for all you have done to make our dream become a reality. The new Davie County High School opened in August 2017 on time and within budget. New Atlantic’s commitment to quality and excellence from beginning to completion resulted in a high school that is a beacon in our community and model school facility in our state. Your team at New Atlantic worked with our leadership team, project manager, architect, engineers, and all of your sub contractors with precision. Every time we called to ask a question or share a challenge, your team was there to answer and resolve. Your team’s effective communication through job site meetings and regular updates always kept us aware of progress milestones, schedules, and what to expect next on the site. This excellent communication resulted in a partnership and open dialogue that is better than any school project I have ever experienced.

New Atlantic was awarded the construction contract for the new Davie County High School project after a prequalification process.
The 335,000 SF complex is situated on 65-acres in rural Farmington, North Carolina, and has a core capacity of 2,000 students.
The facility houses a three-story classroom wing, two gymnasiums and physical education areas, auditorium, full-service cafeteria and dining, media center with a coffee shop, and a stand-alone Career Technical Education building. On-site is a sports complex with tennis courts, a 4,500 person football stadium, press box, and a concession stand.
New Atlantic was able to keep an accident-free project while coordinating and working with as many as 240 tradespeople at the peak of productivity.
