Project Case Study
Cooper Elementary was out of date and no longer serving the educational needs of its students. The McCownGordon team was selected to construct a brand new facility with large classrooms, collaborative learning spaces and more.

This sleek and modern facility replaces the 1950s building to provide students with today’s educational needs including enlarged classrooms, huge windows, ADA compliance and collaboration space all incorporated with a feather theme mimicking the Eagle mascot.

The building includes new arts and music suites, and also incorporated the existing gym and library into the new building. Once construction was complete, teachers and staff transitioned into the new building. The old building was then demolished and turned into a parking lot with a dedicated drop-off lane.
