Southern Highlands is an 8,500 square foot private preparatory school. The facility serves pre-school and elementary students. The owner also has plans for another school to serve junior high and high school students adjacent to the elementary building. The building contains 12 elementary classrooms, three pre-school classrooms, a multi-purpose room, teachers lounge, and administrative offices. There are also three play yards, one for pre-school, kindergarten and elementary age students.
The project was originally let as a competitive hard dollar lump sum bid. The Korte Company submitted the lowest competitive bid, however, the project was still over budget. Korte worked together with the owner, architect, and subcontractors to develop value engineering options and pricing. This effort, led by The Korte Company, brought the project in budget and allowed Southern Highlands to meet their opening date.
