Willow Valley Elementary is over fifty years old and benefitted from an extensive remodel to upgrade materials throughout and replace systems which had exceeded their life cycles. All of the classrooms received new media system technology as well as new finishes and casework. The schedule was aggressive for design and construction: the entire project needed to be completed over one summer break. Close coordination was required between Design West and the CM/GC to make sure the typical surprises that are part of an extensive remodel did not derail the critical schedule. Design West had architects on site on an almost daily basis in order to help the CM/GC meet the schedule commitments.
