Construction is moving ahead on a new classroom building for Burlingame Intermediate School. The contractor, Sausal Construction, has been hard at work since beginning work on the site in January.
The new 23,910 sf building includes 12 classrooms, each with access to a breakout space for small-group learning. The building is designed to enhance 21st century learning, and in response to the specific curriculum ideas of the District. It's designed as a high-performing learning environment, as well as a sustainable, energy efficient building, including daylighting, natural ventilation and provisions for future energy generation. Water conservation elements include stormwater treatment designed as an educational feature. The building will open in Spring 2016.
