Rex Bell Elementary School
This CMAR project is an elementary school replacement – new construction, demolition and removal of existing site amenities and school buildings are being phased in order to keep the existing operations uninterrupted for the school year. The new school which consists of two-stories; level one is 73,965 SF and level two is 27,103 SF for a total of 101,304 SF, is being constructed on the approximately 2.8 acres of undeveloped grass area to the east of the existing building. The new building is primarily steel structure with concrete masonry exterior bearing walls with interior metal stud furring insulation. The interior wall construction is metal stud framing with gypsum board. The scope of work includes site improvements, as well as new parking areas, curb cut realignments, playgrounds and equipment, removal and relocation of portable classrooms and bus drop off area.
For preconstruction services, Martin-Harris Construction is utilizing Navis Works for 3D coordination of structural, sprinklers, plumbing, mechanical, electrical and interference walls and ceilings.
