We’ve recently begun construction on Shawanoe Elementary School located at 11230 W. 75th Street in Shawnee, KS. The project encompasses the construction of a new, two-story 84,650 square foot elementary school, along with the removal of the existing school and site improvements including a new parking lot.
Unique project features include the gymnasium, which will double as a storm shelter made of precast concrete walls. Additionally, there will be movable partitions to accommodate for classroom expansion and multi-use areas as needed.
We will use a four phased approach to ensure that the new building is open to welcome students for the 2015 – 2016 school year. Phase I construction is began in late Summer 2014 with the final phase to be completed by Fall 2016.
Project employees on behalf of Straub Construction include Dan VanDonge as Senior Project Manager with Jeff Walters as Project Superintendent. ACI/Boland Inc. of Kansas City, Missouri will serve as the Architect.
