The district chose McCownGordon through a qualitative section process to manage renovations of nine of the area’s schools. Renovations in each of the schools varied from heavy to light based upon the needs of the individual building. Some facilities received complete mechanical upgrades based on life-cycle analyses performed during the preconstruction phase, while others simply received a face-lift with new wall and flooring finishes. Renovations also included secure entries, areas of increased daylighting and technological upgrades to facilitate blended learning and 21st century learning techniques. The renovated schools provide state-of-the-art learning spaces to give the students of Lawrence the very best education environment possible.
