A total modernization of New Castle Middle School transformed the building to support 21st century learning and to welcome sixth grade students for the first time.
Highlights of the design include a self-contained sixth-grade neighborhood, improved security, transformed space for 21st century learning and a new auxiliary gymnasium.
A creative phasing strategy lowered the middle school’s construction costs by $5.5 million and reduced the project schedule by 6 to 12 months. New Castle Middle School’s students moved into excess space within New Castle High School for the duration of construction. This allowed contractors to work more efficiently, resulting in the savings.
