Interior Construction Begins at Aspen School

A load of dry wall for interior walls arrives at Aspen Elementary School, 2182 33rd St., which is undergoing major remodeling. The project is expected to be complete in January 2015. For the rest of this school year and continuing into next fall, all classes are being housed in portables next to the construction site. Construction plans call for the new school to be completed in two phases. The first phase renovates a new foyer and remodels the administrative wing. The second phase calls for a two-story school that houses the lower grades on the bottom floor and upper grades on the top floor. Photo by Robert Beberniss

The cost of the Aspen Elementary School construction project is around $18 million, of which about a third is being funded by the Public Schools Facilities Authority. Photo by Robert Beberniss
