The U.S. Census Bureau recently released official numbers from the 2020 census, and Nebraska experienced a 7.4% increase in population growth in the last decade. Nebraska’s population growth ranked 20th in all 50 states.
With population growth comes families and children, and with more children comes the increased need for more schools.
Prairie Construction can attest to this population growth. In the last decade, we have been busy building new schools – elementary, middle and high schools – across the metro area. We’ve done recent projects for the Elkhorn, District 66, and Papillion/LaVista school districts, and most recently we have been busy with the newest elementary school in Bennington.
The elementary school is located at 168th and Military Ave. and will be a K-5 school with a capacity of 480-520 students. Our deep experience with school projects has helped us navigate the stages of this project and remain on schedule.
Prairie Construction is prepared to help business expand and school districts accommodate the continued population growth in Nebraska!
