Laurel County School District elected to restore and renovate the original London Elementary School Building, constructed in 1936, into the Laurel County Central Board Office. Reminiscent of the style of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) era, the building was constructed with limestone load-bearing masonry walls, a wood floor and roof structure, and interior wood-framed stud walls.

The renovation included the complete removal of all the wood roof, floor, and wall framing, which returned the building to a basic shell space. New construction included new concrete floor slabs and a new light gauge and steel-framed roof structure to match the original roof lines. All existing windows and window infills were removed and replaced with new windows to restore the original appearance of a WPA building. Both an elevator addition and main lobby addition were constructed with materials to match existing masonry construction. Complete new HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems were provided throughout. The geothermal HVAC system shares a common well field with the adjacent elementary school. A large state-of-the-art central conference room was constructed, and the remaining portions of the building were designed for office space, workrooms, and central office document storage.

The final outcome of the renovation and addition created a building reminiscent of the WPA era with state-of-the-art offices for the Laurel County Board of Education.
