Project Description

The previous Elbert Edwards Elementary School was built in 1976. At the end of the 2018-19 school year in May, Roche abated and demolished the school and site elements and began construction on a new campus, which accommodates 850 students. During construction, the students and staff at Edwards Elementary relocated to portables a mile-and-a-half from the school.

The 10-acre campus consists of five structures including a 4,960-square-foot administration building, a 16,680-square-foot multipurpose building, two classroom buildings totaling 70,550 square feet, and a 1,300-square central plant. The multipurpose building includes flex learning areas, physical education and music classrooms, kitchen, and a large multipurpose space with a stage. The classroom buildings are two-story and are connected via a second-story bridge, which creates an exterior breezeway below.

Site development included new utilities, parking lots, landscaping, and a botanical garden.
