Balfour Beatty Construction breaks ground on Solana Ranch Elementary School

Balfour Beatty Construction has broken ground on the new Solana Ranch Elementary School.

The $27.6 million project consists of building about 68,000 square feet of classroom and supporting space on an 11.65-acre lot in the Pacific Highlands Ranch community.

Once construction is complete, the school will have a two-story, 60,143-square-foot classroom building; a one-story, 5,233-square-foot multipurpose building; and a one-story, 2,935-square-foot child development center preschool.

Site work will include construction of parking lots, a solar canopy, a covered lunch shelter, playgrounds, ball fields, an amphitheater and a garden area.

Several sustainable features are being incorporated into the project, including energy-efficient lighting, mechanical and passive ventilation systems, solar panels and more.

The school is slated to be finished by March 2014, with classes beginning in the fall of 2014.

This will be the seventh elementary school for the Solana Beach School District.
