Steel topped out on new classrooms at Knox Middle School

The steel structure of what will soon be one of Knox Middle School’s latest modernization efforts has been topped out by construction crews, contractor Suffolk-Roel announced Friday.

The project, which began during mid-2012, will bring to the school a new two-story, 40,000-square-foot classroom building by October, crews expect. Located on South 49th Street in San Diego, Knox Middle is part of the San Diego Unified School District, which is in the process of modernizing many of its campuses through the 2008 voter-approved $2.1 billion Proposition S general bond program.

In addition to the new building, which will replace portable classrooms, the project encompasses modernizations such as heating, ventilating and air conditioning for all new and existing buildings, adding two new parking lots, upgraded physical education locker rooms and a host of other changes.

The work is all a continuation of a transition the school has undergone since switching from an elementary school into a middle school during 2012, serving students from sixth to eighth grades.

Roger Eliot Kerr and Group Cristilli are the project architects.
