At Prairie Construction, no job is too big or too small. We’ve done everything from a 10,000 square-foot renovation to new construction builds measuring well over 100,000 square feet.
Over the last several years, we have completed several school projects – renovations, brand new buildings for those looking to start a school of their own and building additions. Arbor View Elementary and Blue Sage Elementary, both in Elkhorn, are among new school buildings we have recently completed, and we are currently finishing Oakdale Elementary, a new District 66 School. We added a concession building at Lewis Central, and have completed numerous project at VJ Skutt Catholic High School. There are generally a few renovations that are common in most projects, like the renovation of the commons area, wrestling building, parking lot expansion (with new parking signage), weight room renovation, soccer field, and football stadium seating expansion.
School projects are unique because we are usually working while school is in session. Sticking to a strict construction schedule, and having flexibility to accommodate a constantly-changing school schedule, are crucial. Our experience with school projects gives us the confidence needed to complete each project on schedule and budget. Our goal with every school project is to create a safe and efficient space for children to learn and develop.
We understand the concepts behind well-designed school buildings. Tight schedules and efficient traffic flow are essential to a successful school day, and we can anticipate issues and facilitate effective designs while staying on schedule.
“Prairie’s professionalism, teamwork and get-it-done mentality has impressed the Elkhorn Public Schools district,” said Ryan Lindquist, Elkhorn Public Schools. “Our projects with Prairie have always been completed on time and within budget.”
When it comes to schools, nothing is more important than the safety of students, and this is an area where we excel. Children spend several hours a day in a school building, and nothing is more important than creating a safe environment where they can learn, grow and be happy.
We are proud to be involved in building the future for the kids in our community. Contact us to learn more about our school projects.
