PHOENIX (June 18, 2013) – Sundt Construction, Inc. has begun renovating Shadow Mountain High School for the Paradise Valley Unified School District in Phoenix. The high school, located at 2901 E. Shea Boulevard, is receiving building upgrades and other site improvements designed to increase accessibility on campus and improve the overall student experience.
With a tight timeline of only 12 weeks, Sundt’s team broke ground immediately after classes ended in May. The $3.5 million project, located in the heart of the school campus, involves renovating the athletic facilities, upgrading the exteriors to several buildings and adding features so the campus is more compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The renovation project has an expected completion date of Aug. 8, just in time for the 2013-2014 school year to begin.
“We understand the need to work quickly and efficiently on these types of education construction projects to conform to the school’s academic calendar,” said Brian Higgins, Sundt superintendent. “Though 12 weeks is short for most construction projects, Sundt is more than willing and able to navigate the timeline, while providing the students the best facilities for the coming school year.”
Sundt serves as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR), while ADM Group is the architect for the project.
Sundt Construction, Inc. is one of the country’s largest and most respected laboratory contractors. Known nationally for its innovative approach to construction services, the firm is currently ranked the 64th largest construction company in the United States by ENR, the industry’s principal trade magazine.
