Designed by the SLAM Collaborative, with Colliers Project Leaders serving as owner’s project manager, the new early childhood facility will house all pre-K and kindergarten classes for the town of Johnston in a facility designed to nurture young learners. Similarly, the new elementary school will house grades one through four for the district, consolidating the four existing elementary facilities into one, organized into learning neighborhoods and featuring art, music, STEAM, media, physical education, and student support spaces.
As part of the program, Johnston Senior High School will undergo renovations to science rooms and upgrade spaces for academic collaboration, enhancing the educational offerings at the school. Additionally, selective renovations, including essential upgrades to building systems, entryway improvements for security and aesthetics, and a complete renovation to the culinary and athletic locker room spaces will be part of the upcoming work.
“Our team is excited to partner with Town of Johnston for this important capital improvement program and help deliver the community’s vision for 21st century learning facilities,” said Steve Duvel, Senior Vice President and Rhode Island Business Unit Leader for Gilbane. “Our proven past experience working with both Colliers and SLAM will help usher this project to completion safely, with student and community well-being remaining paramount throughout.”
