Delivered via design-build, the $51 million TK-8th grade school was built on a 12-acre site by a partnership of JL Modular, Otto Construction and NMR Architects. Completed in 2021, the new two-story school features three buildings with 35 classrooms and an administration/ library building. It serves 850 students.
This project used permanent modular construction techniques, which combine the form and function of traditional site-built construction with the
speed and cost efficiency of the modular construction process. The steel-framed buildings were pre-fabricated in modular sections off-site that were transported to the site, erected and finished. This method helped shorten the overall construction schedule and kept costs down.
