McKinley Elementary School Replacement | Farmington, NM
The goal for this project was to replace the majority of the aging McKinley Elementary School’s worn-out facilities, while allowing classes to continue uninterrupted on campus during construction. Our Design Team worked closely with the District to devise a three-phased plan for construction that minimized disruption to students.
Phase 1 constructed a new two-story classroom building in the middle of the old playground. Once students had moved into the new facility, Phase 2 construction was able to proceed on the existing building. This phase included demolition of the existing classroom building and remodeling the newer portions of the existing building into a new administrative suite, special education, and student health facility. Phase 3 included a new Kindergarten wing addition and parking lots for parents and staff.
New construction encompasses approximately 51,000 square feet; the remodel area is approximately 9,000 square feet.
