Thornton Construction was selected to completely renovate this exclusive private school under a CM-at-Risk contract. Ten thousand square feet of two buildings were gutted and rebuilt. Envelope windows were removed and replaced with impact resistant glass while the roof was lifted to create vaulted ceilings. To add a concrete tower above the entranceway of the administration building, its first floor was structurally reinforced. Parking and landscaping were upgraded with special emphasis on improving vehicle and pedestrian traffic flow. New sod, shrubs and trees were planted on the grounds, and new irrigation and drainage systems were installed.
