PROJECT DELIVERY —
In its continued commitment to nurturing young minds, the Guilford County School System launched a new 94,000 square foot elementary school. This state-of-the-art facility includes expansive classroom spaces, a multipurpose room, a cafeteria, a media room, and two engaging playgrounds for the students.
One of the unique design elements of this school is the color-coding of the wings for each grade level. This not only adds vibrancy to the school but also provide easy navigation and identification for the students.
Adding to the infrastructure, there’s a separate building housing a storage tank for the sprinkler system, ensuring safety measures are well in place.
What sets this project apart was the involvement of a local student from Guilford County Schools, who participated in a three-month internship program during the construction phase. This initiative provided the student with hands-on experience and practical insights into the development process, thereby bridging the gap between theory and practice.
This new elementary school stands as a testament to the district’s dedication to providing top-tier learning environments that inspire creativity, innovation, and growth among their students.
