In January of 2017 CWG was contracted to begin programming, design, and contract administration on a new elementary school for East Helena.
The new building includes a full-size gym that can be used for tournaments and other community events, a computer lab and a spacious library which has exterior access for public events after school hours.
Building a new school gave the district an opportunity to boost security measures. The school has a camera system and electronic locks to quickly lock down wings of the school in case of a threat. All the entrances to the schools are on timers so the district can control access. The door leading out to the playground, for example, is open when students are at recess, but automatically locks during class time.
The compressed budget and tight schedule proceeded very smoothly, and the school was completed in August of 2018. This project is a testament to our team attitude and get-it- done approach.
