This new PreK-3rd grade school was constructed to provide the school district’s youngest students with the most environmentally conscious facility in the area. This single story building features elevated ceilings in the entryway and throughout the main hall, gymnasium and media/library center and includes 70 classrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, cafeteria with stage and administrative offices. The project earned LEED certification for its incorporation of regional and recycled materials with energy efficient mechanical and lighting systems.

It is my experience that the success of any project depends in large measure on the professionalism of the team assembled and the team’s ability to communicate and work collaboratively towards the goal. Your team’s attention to detail, responsiveness, receptivity to our ideas, and follow through as promised in every situation was impressive.
