Hickory Construction is excited to serve as the general contractor to build the new Ooltewah Elementary School. The new school will house about 1,100 students, with nine classrooms in kindergarten through third grade and eight classrooms in both fourth and fifth grades.
Ground was broken last summer at the site on Ooltewah-Georgetown Road in Ooltewah, Tennessee. Hickory is working with Franklin Associates, Architects, from Chattanooga, the project’s architectural firm.
The completion date for this project is Aug. 1, 2013, in time for the school to open for the 2013 school year.
The scope of the project consists of the complete site development, roadwork and building construction for this new 137,000-square-foot, fully sprinkled school, housing classrooms, dining and food facilities, play rooms, media center, administrative offices and other support facilities.
This school will include a geothermal HVAC system.
“Hickory Construction is excited to break ground for this 13-month project, which will require some around-the-clock shift work to complete on time,” said Burke Pinnell, president of Hickory Construction. “Hickory strives to complete projects on or before deadline and focuses on customer satisfaction. We are certainly proud to add this school project to Hickory’s diverse list of projects.”
