The new 213,157 square foot PK-12 school will house 1,715 students. The new building will be located on the existing Reading Community Junior/Senior High School site, located at 810 E. Columbia Avenue, Reading, Ohio. The new building will achieve or exceed a LEED Certification of Silver and incorporate the District's educational visioning specifications while complying with the latest version of the Ohio School Design Manual (OSDM). Abatement and demolition of the District's existing schools is included as part of the scope of work. Abatment and demolition of the Junior/Senior High School shall take place prior to starting construction on the new PK-12 building. Upon completion and turnover of the new PK-12 building, abatement and demolition of the existing Hilltop Community Elementary School, and Central Community Elementary School will commence. This project is in collaboration with the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC).
This project is currently in the early stages of design with construction to begin in September 2017.
