To meet the education needs of residents in the rapidly developing town of Erie, Colo., Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) last year began building Meadowlark School. About 570 prekindergarten through eighth grade students will attend the new state-of-the-art school in the fall. “Boulder Valley School District has about 27,000 students with 56 schools covering about 540 square miles,” BVSD Project Manager Tom Blahak says. “A piece of the Town of Erie is located in Boulder County and it’s our first building this far East.”

BVSD began area assessments for Meadowlark in 2013 and in 2014 passed a $576 million bond issue to build it and replace three other schools. “It’s still the largest public school bond issuance in Colorado history,” Blahak says. “Meadowlark total cost is $41.6 million with construction cost amounting to about $32.2 million.”

This allows Fowler & Hammer Inc. to analyze constructability while efficiently planning and coordinating jobsite activities with trade contractors.

“As a general contractor, we do things the right way,” Vice President and COO Eric Lehmann says.  “We don’t cut corners. I know a lot of contractors say that, but we truly don’t. We want to build our projects right the first time by offering exceptional quality and value.”
