Campbellsville Elementary School has a new look.
Renovations were recently completed to add classrooms and upgrade the school environment.
Work began in March 2016 and was completed 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 cost about $9.7 million.
N3D Group was the architect for the project, and Codell Construction was construction manager.
Renovations at CES included 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.
After renovations were complete, 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.
