The John G. Wood School is located on the campus of the Virginia School for Boys and Girls. This newly constructed facility offers the residents classrooms, a library, an infirmary, therapy rooms, music room, administrative offices, multi-purpose rooms for after-hours use and staff lounge. "We've been surprised that we're ahead of schedule and not seeing cost over-runs...Emerald has an exemplary level of customer service. They have given us what they promised and more. We couldn't be happier." Chris Schultz, Executive Director
Advantages for the Virginia School for Boys and Girls: Emerald's ability to work on a small site on an operational residential campus was a plus. Measures were put into place to ensure the safety of the residents, staff and workers during construction. Offering solutions in the field kept the schedule moving and costs in check.
