Groundbreaking Three New Elementary Schools

The elementary school construction project is well underway with the recent groundbreaking for Lohr, Watson and Southway elementary schools

The elementary school construction project is well underway with the recent groundbreaking for Lohr, Watson and Southway elementary schools on Tuesday, Sept. 13. The sites are now ready for the next step, which will include excavating the grounds, creating the construction entrances, establishing the drive lanes & parking lots and early installations of utilities. Construction of the footers and walls will begin in February/March, depending on the weather, with the roofing on all three new buildings being completed in the fall of 2023. The schools’ interiors will be completed in the spring of 2024. All this work will have us on track to open the buildings for staff training sessions and move in by early summer 2024. 

For more information regarding construction progress, visit https://nextsteps.perrylocal.org. We will continue to provide updates throughout the construction process via the district website, social media and the Perryite. If you have any questions, please email PerryFAQ@perrylocal.org.

Elementary School Construction Progress

Progress on the elementary school construction project has continued through the summer.

Progress on the elementary school construction project has continued through the summer. With the "Design Development" phase having been completed for all three new schools, they are now in the final phase of design or "Construction Documentation." At this stage building plans are highly detailed and include information about the buildings overall layout, and also the mechanical systems, casework, flooring, construction details, and furniture layout which drill down to specific measurements. 

 

With these plans being close to final, the project can go out for an "early site package." This package allows initial site work to happen in advance of building construction. A "Guaranteed Maximum Price" (GMP) negotiation for this work is expected to take place towards the end of August. This GMP is where the Construction Manager at Risk agrees to a price for the work in this phase of the project. Once this is finalized, site work can begin.

As designs are finalized, the architectural team has created artistic perspectives for each of the new elementary schools. These colorful images give the community, new students and parents an idea of what the building facades could look like when completed. 

 

Designs and patterns for each school exemplify one aspect of the Perry community and feature outdoor play areas, new parking lots, drop-off bus loops, a technology-rich media center, community focused spaces like a dedicated gymnasium and student dining, along with state-of-the-art classrooms. The new buildings are organized to meet the needs of the community and Perry students and educators well into the future.

We look forward to a groundbreaking this fall!
