Lemonwood School Reconstruction
The Lemonwood Reconstruction project began construction in May 2016, and substantial completion for first phase has been set for December 2017, which includes the two-story classroom building and multipurpose room. Overall construction is currently scheduled to be completed in summer of 2018.
When its phased construction is complete, the new Lemonwood school will accommodate 900 students by State standards in grades K-8, including 28 general purpose classrooms, 4 Kindergarten classrooms, 3 science/flex lab classrooms, and 2 special education classrooms. Specified support facilities, administration areas, media center, food service, multipurpose room, physical education spaces, and restrooms will also be provided.
The reconstruction of the Lemonwood facility also retains and repurposes Building 3 of the original campus. Six modernized classrooms are proposed to provide “Flex Rooms” for enhanced kindergarten, transitional kindergarten, or preschool programs as may be required by the District. The construction plans for this phase of work were approved by DSA in January 2017, and construction of the project is expected to be undertaken at completion of the Lemonwood Reconstruction project.
SVA Architects designed the project and Swinerton Builders was selected to provide construction services.
