Two-year project remains on schedule for August 2019 completion

The completion of the two-year renovation and reconstruction of STEM Lab in Northglenn remains on schedule for an August 2019 completion.

March progress included the completion of exterior brick work on the building's new 25,000-square-foot expansion and the installation of most of the building's new windows. Inside the building, interior framing continued. The new wing will be home to the school's administrative area, library and middle school classrooms. 

Spring Break also allowed contractors to continue some renovation work in the existing portion of the building that will allow the new expansion to seamlessly connect when the construction is finished.

The school is in the midst of a two-year renovation and reconstruction. Phase 2, which began in Summer 2018, 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 remaining, original portion of the building is also being renovated. The project is one of the largest pieces of the 2016 Bond Program made possible thanks to the support of the Five Star community.

When the school's renovation and reconstruction is completed, it will allow enrollment to grow from 475 current students to an anticipated 720 students and provide more STEM-learning opportunities for students across the Five Star District.
