South Street Elementary School

As part of larger statewide initiative to improve k-12 public school facilities to prepare NJ students for the future, STV was contracted by the New Jersey School District Authority to perform construction management services for the South Street Elementary School in Newark, NJ. The newly-built, three-story, 103,000-square-foot facility accommodates more than 650 students from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade and features a computer/technology lab, a rooftop outdoor science learning center, a world languages classroom, an art room, a media center, a multipurpose room, a cafeteria and a gymnasium, two science labs, six small group instruction rooms, instrumental and vocal music rooms, and 29 general classrooms. Additional site work included community accessible spaces, landscaping, parking, fencing and physical education and play areas. 

STV’s services included construction administration, estimating, and scheduling. These services supported phased advancement of work, with construction taking place in stages where the design was already completed. The finished school, which encompasses nearly a city block, stands as a positive and safe learning environment that encourages students’ academic and personal development while serving an ever-growing student body with the critical resources they need.
