On schedule STEM Lab project moves forward in December

Construction on the reconstructed STEM Lab in Northglenn moved ahead in December and remains on pace for an August 2019 completion.

The school is in the midst of a two-year renovation and reconstruction. Phase 2, which began this past summer, involves the construction of a 25,000-square-foot expansion on the west side of the building. A similar expansion was completed on the east side of the building in 2018. The project is one of the largest pieces of the 2016 Bond Program made possible thanks to the support of the Five Star community.
