Campbellsville Elementary School will soon have a new look.
Renovations are in the works to add classrooms and upgrade the school environment.
Work began in March and is expected to be complete in about 10 months, before the 2017-2018 school year.
Ground was broken for the project on Thursday, March 10, in a special ceremony.
The work will cost $9.7 million.
N3D Group is the architect for the project, and Codell Construction is construction manager.
Renovations planned at CES include the addition of four new classrooms, a new HVAC unit, a fire suppression system, interior finishes, new kitchen and cafeteria, new restrooms, renovation of existing classrooms, a new playground for preschool students and work to administrative suites, parking areas and the front façade.
Once renovations are complete at CES, and later at Campbellsville Middle School, all fourth- and fifth-grade students will be housed at CES, making it a more traditional elementary school, and the CMS building will better suit the needs of a middle school.
Renovation drawings are shown below, along with the links to news stories about the construction project.
