United School District has grown rapidly, with an 18% rise in student population since 2008. Their existing facilities were aging, lacked capacity, and were unable to accommodate the 21st Century teaching methods.
During the pre-construction phase, Consolidated Construction presented 109 value engineering ideas to the District to accept or deny, ultimately resulting in $1.27 million in savings without compromising any educational space.
Since this complicated project spanned much more than could be done in the traditional summer construction season preferred by schools, Consolidated crafted a meticulous 4-phase approach to the new construction, demolition, repurposing, and renovations, allowing much of the work to be done while school was in session while putting paramount importance on the safety of students, staff, and visitors.
This project earned a Projects of Distinction Gold Award from Associated Builders and Contractors.
