Sunset Ridge School’s mission statement – to cultivate a learning community that engages the hearts and minds of students, one child at a time – has been brought to life in a new 70,000-square-foot educational facility.

Pepper’s team added tremendous value throughout the preconstruction phase by coordinating with the District and architect to proactively establish cost savings by focusing on the most viable construction alternatives available within the established budget. The 4th through 8th grade replacement school required the demolition of the existing facility to make way for new classrooms, an auditorium, gym, offices, a tornado shelter and athletic fields.

The project is certified LEED Platinum.
