This new, two-phase project includes a classroom addition and a
gymnasium for the 450 children attending Palmer Catholic Academy in
kindergarten through eighth grade.
The first phase of this project included second story addition of
classrooms, an administrative room, and a teachers' lounge. In addition,
two existing classrooms on the first floor were renovated into a student
lunch room. This phase of the project also included the addition of a
36-space asphalt parking lot over underground rain storage tanks, the
installation of fire sprinklers throughout the existing school building,
and the relocation of the electrical transformer and sewage lift station
in preparation for phase two. The first phase was completed in 8 ˝ weeks
over summer break - the tight schedule required working weekends,
extended hours, and at night.
The second phase of this project included the two-story Parish
Gymnasium. The new facility includes a basketball and volleyball courts,
bleachers, a concession area, locker rooms, a stage, music and youth
rooms, and meeting rooms. This phase of the project also included
covered walkways, additional parking, and landscaping. Due to the
location of the new building within the campus, construction work was
carefully planned to ensure that the campus remained fully operational
at all times. Additionally, the entire construction area was fenced in
to maintain a separation between school activities and construction
