Gaithersburg, MD – Keller Construction Management has broken ground on the Brown Station Elementary School project in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
The project consists of the demolition of the existing 60,000 sf school and the construction of a new, three-story, 114,000 sf replacement elementary school. The new school will include classrooms for pre-k, head start, kindergarten and grades 1-5, an art room, music room, multi-purpose room, gymnasium, media center, administrative suite, health suite, offices and associated support spaces. Other features include two softball fields, an overlaid soccer field, four new hard and mulch play areas, separated student drop-off and bus loops, parking and associated site work. In addition, the project will also include a self-contained County day care facility on site. The project is registered and will be certified for silver or higher rating in conformance with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification through the United States Green Building Council.
Keller Construction Management is providing Construction Management at Risk services to Montgomery County Public Schools on this project. Construction began in January 2016. The existing building has been demolished and work on the new building is currently underway.
Students and staff at Brown Station Elementary have been relocated to a holding school at Emory Grove during the Brown Station Elementary School modernization. The new Brown Station Elementary School will be completed in summer 2017 in time for the start of the 2017-2018 school year.
The Lukmire Partnership is the architect on this project.
