This project, which was managed by the Public Buildings Commission, includes site development and required parking for the 50,000 sq. ft. annex. The addition houses a lunchroom / multipurpose room, kitchen and 24 classrooms. As part of the project, the existing school building underwent improvements as well. Three classrooms in the existing building were also renovated. Water infiltration into the existing building prompted the need for roofing, masonry, mechanical, electrical and plumbing system repairs and improvements.

After building completion, Berglund’s scope of work turned toward improving the play area for the children. To make room for a new play field, Berglund removed two modular buildings on the west side of the site and the existing playground removed and the new one installed.
