Priorities during the construction phase of this project include the safety and security of students and staff, and minimizing disruption to the educational process during school hours.
Construction of Mansfield's New Elementary School is estimated to take 16 months. The schedule calls for the building to be ready for students at the start of school in September 2022, although final sitework will extend into the early winter of 2022 as the project is closed down. Immediate next steps include:
The Mansfield Town Council will determine the new school name so that signage can be ordered
Drilling of more than 60 geothermal wells will continue into October, 2021
The foundation is nearly complete, and wall construction will begin on the building in three sections (see photos)
In September and October, the final recommendations for selection of furniture, fixtures and equipment will be brought to the School Building Committee.
