Barren County Schools wanted to offer career pathway programs for students and hired RBS Design Group to design a new Career and Technical Education Center, also known as the Barren County Innovation Zone. The project also included improvements to the Chapatcha Athletic Complex, home of the Trojan Field Football Stadium.
A two-story facility, the lower level is dedicated to athletics – locker rooms, restrooms, and the concessions. The upper story – the Innovation Zone – houses classrooms and labs. The classrooms overlook the football field and serve as skyboxes during games.
Improvements to the athletic complex included new grandstand stadium seating, new synthetic turf field, LED lighting, storm drainage, an eight-lane track, fencing, and sewer relocation.
