Description of Services Provided

Wilmer-Hutchins High School, built in 1982 was closed in 2005 when the Wilmer-Hutchins Independent School District was dissolved. Under the jurisdiction of the Dallas Independent School District, JMA Johnson provided an extensive facilities condition assessment of the existing campus. Three separate buildings were merged into one facility. This new design supported a comprehensive campus security controls system and additional efficiency for academic learning success.


Working with Dallas Independent School District (DISD), Mr. Johnson was commissioned to reopen an abandoned high school facility, which was closed by the State of Texas due to bankruptcy filing of the previous public administration. Mr. Johnson’s solution was to implement a design process of cultural inclusiveness, teaming with the new administration in the programming phase and seizing the opportunity to implement new Green Building Technology, to re-life the campus buildings. The learning outcome provided evidence of the value of sustainable educational environments. The exemplary project is the Wilmer Hutchins High School and Stadium.
