PHES
 

The project at PHES was the first of the Facility Master Plan projects to begin. A Construction contract was awarded to Core Construction of Nevada in June of 2011, and construction began immediately thereafter. 

Improvements included renovations to one classroom in each wing, as well as improvements to the Kindergarten rooms. An 8 classroom addition was added to the South side of the building providing state of the art classrooms complying with newly developed Education Specifications. Also, areas of concern, such as the site's traffic flow between school buses and parent drop off areas, were addressed. Any items on the KIDS Committee action list for bond funding were addressed through this project as well.

PHES also received new furnishings, computers, as well as a refurbished playground area directly to the West of the new addition.

During the summer break of 2012, new Promethean Boards and Accessories were installed, supplied by a grant for this specific purpose by the Community Foundation of Western Nevada, to whom the District is extremely grateful for the opportunity to provide a Promethean Board in each classroom at all elementary schools District-wide.

Construction was substantially complete by the first week of January 2012, two months ahead of schedule. PHES now enjoys a newly modified campus which provides a superb learning environment upholding District standards.

GES
 

GES was the second project of the Facility Master Plan Phase 1a. Due to the age of the building, the design stage of this project began in January of 2011, and the final design was approved by the Board of Trustees in September 2011 in tandem with Core Construction of Nevada delivering the Guaranteed Maximum Price proposal (GMP).

Construction began in October of 2011, and was completed October 2012.

The improvements at GES are numerous and far reaching. Nearly all existing classrooms were modified to the new District standard. Special Education Suites were created, and the school office location was moved to a central point of access for the site. A new wing of 9 classrooms was added to meet the capacity needs for this site to accommodate the closure of the Heritage Building. Also, a new Commons/Multi-purpose room was constructed with brand new kitchen facilities, and a stage area that doubles as the Art and Music classrooms.

An additional improvement made was a new circulation/traffic pattern for loading and unloading times to separate buses from parent drop off areas which provided an extra measure of safety. Additional parking was also added.

The project included updating inadequate systems such as telecommunication, intercom, and fire systems, thereby addressing the items approved by the KIDS Committee to improve the safety of the school site.

Also, during the summer of 2012, new Promethean Boards and Accessories were installed, supplied by a grant for this specific purpose by the Community Foundation of Western Nevada, to whom the District is extremely grateful for the opportunity to provide a Promethean Board in each classroom at all elementary schools District-wide.
