Blue Valley Aspen Grove Elementary School

Project Case Study
To accommodate the booming growth that Overland Park, KS has experienced in the past few years, a new elementary school was necessary to ensure the children of Overland Park and surrounding areas have the necessary attention, tools and space to learn and grow. The new ground-up project includes 73,000 square ft. of large collaboration and common areas for students, teachers and administration to come together.

Notable features include a climbing wall, art room with a clay kiln and an abundance of natural light coming through the many windows. The site that the elementary school sits on was a complex and large cut/fill project from an earthwork perspective. During pre-construction, the McCownGordon team performed multiple rounds of value engineering where the original two story building plan was value engineered down to one single story.

This was the Blue Valley School District’s first construction manager at risk project; the entire AEC team worked collaboratively in order to demonstrate the value of the construction manager at risk delivery method.
