  • PROJECT DESCRIPTION

  • PROJECT INFORMATION

The Sing Lum Elementary School campus was constructed over 25 years ago as a mostly modular developer built school. The existing modular classrooms had deteriorated extensively and were in dire need of replacement. The District’s goal was to replace as many modular classroom buildings on campus as possible while maintaining and enhancing the limited playground area on this nine acre site. Sing Lum’s modernization encompassed preconstruction, construction services and the utilization of over 40,000 sf of permanent modular buildings to reconstruct the existing school site. The use of permanent modular buildings reduced the construction footprint allowing construction work to take place with 900 students present. The decision to utilize permanent modular buildings saved the District money as student relocation was not needed.
