60,000 SF

2022 ENR Mountain States, Best Project

This new 60,000-sf, $25 million K-8 school was constructed adjacent to the school’s existing K-5 Skyline Vista. Once the new building was completed, the old facility was demolished. Because construction was taking place on an occupied campus, the safety of students, faculty and staff was critical and required careful planning by AP’s superintendent. The new building is two stories and has capacity for 600 students. Included in the scope was a gymnasium, cafeteria/stage/commons area, kitchen, media center, classrooms and flex rooms for group learning. The project was designed to include as much natural light as possible with clearstories. Once the new school was completed, AP built ballfields and playgrounds in the footprint of the old school.
