Barr-Reeve Community School Groundbreaking
Montgomery, IN. School may be out for the summer, but the hallways at Barr-Reeve Community Schools will still be bustling. Barr-Reeve Community Schools is eager to break ground and celebrate expanding the school’s footprint, bringing all K-12 together to one campus. They will host a formal groundbreaking ceremony at the school on June 11th at 5:00 pm Eastern Time.
Barr-Reeve will undergo a transformation and enlarge their campus footprint with an $11.7 million project to support additions and renovations utilizing design-build delivery. This project will provide state-of-the-art additional classrooms and accommodate the primary grades in the building. Renovations include enlarging the cafeteria, with building additions including a new competition gym, athletic locker rooms and a new choir/music room and band room with practice rooms. The school facilities will also be improved by replacing the aging central boiler and air conditioning plant as well as replacing the oldest classroom heating and cooling units. Target date for substantial completion is August 2020.
The Barr-Reeve Technical Review Committee for the project selected the Performance Services’ design-build team after extensive research to find a provider and delivery method that would best support the school’s goals, with a no change orders guarantee. Performance Services’ design team partners include: Lynch, Harrison & Brumleve, and American Structurepoint, Inc.
“We are extremely excited about the school’s addition and renovation project and what this will mean to our students, faculty, school and community. We are thrilled about how smoothly the process has gone so far and are looking forward to the continued partnership with Performance Services and all the contractors who have come on board to work with us on this project,” said Barr-Reeve Superintendent Dr. Travis Madison.
