Additions and Renovations for Two Elementary Schools
Faced with aging elementary schools, Mooresville Graded School District, located in Mooresville, North Carolina chose to utilize the design-build delivery method to ensure a best-value approach to renovating their school buildings. The District selected this integrated design and delivery approach because it allows for optimization of both building performance and cost by allowing team members working in various disciplines to take advantage of efficiencies that may not be apparent if they are working in isolation. The design-builder will bring together a cohesive team of various disciplines to safeguard against disconnects between the design and construction process, ensuring a more high-quality, cost-effective, and timely project.
In Summer 2020, the District selected Performance Services to serve as the design-builder, in partnership with McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture and G.L. Wilson Building Company, to implement the design-build renovation/addition project. The project aims to renovate and improve the learning environment at Park View Elementary and South Elementary School with the addition of a gymnatorium, enhanced cafeteria and dining space, and upgrades to the HVAC systems to improve indoor air quality.
- Gymnatorium additions, including dual court capacity, stage, ganged restrooms, a family restroom and dedicated before/after school areas for each school
- Enhanced cafeteria and dining space at both elementary schools
- Renovations and updates to the existing HVAC and controls systems at both schools
- Restructuring parking and site traffic at South Elementary
- Restructuring the playgrounds at Park View Elementary
Progressive Design-Build allows for collaboration of the design and construction team during the earliest stages of project design development. Learn about how Tipton County used progressive design-build to construct their new corrections center.
