Lincoln Crossing Elementary School is a 55,647 square-foot facility on 11.3 acres that serves 600 students. Design features emphasize a learning experience exploring a curriculum of science, culture, environment, technology and wellness. Specialized indoor and outdoor labs are located at pivotal entry, circulation and focal points. The school design exceeds the state energy requirements by 22%. Features of the energy-saving design include high performance HVAC and lighting systems, an energy efficient building shell, sustainable building materials, day lighting, deep overhangs and high-tech glazing.

“Clark/Sullivan committed their energy to the project and were successful in opening the school one month before the contractual completion date, resulting in a smooth, and on-time grand opening of the District’s newest elementary school.” – Cathy Allen, Assistant Superintendent of Facilities & Maintenance Services

Before Clark/Sullivan could begin construction, $2.5 million had to be shaved o the project cost. Over a six-week period, we came up with a phenomenal 203 cost-saving ideas totaling $4 million in savings – about 16% of the project cost.

The District selected 70 items – $2.5 million worth – to implement, which brought the budget in line without cutting square footage or sacrificing program needs. The lease-leaseback contract was awarded to Clark/Sullivan and the company immediately mobilized its construction team. n nn
