The Country School

New Construction, Renovation
Private School Easton, Maryland

Our team completed the 3 Phase, 18-month major expansion project for The Country School in Easton, Maryland. The project consists of a new 22,000 square foot Upper School building, about 30,000 square feet of renovated space in the previously existing Lower School Building, and construction of a new parking lot to better improve traffic flow. The new Upper School has enlarged classroom space, designated areas for STEAM classrooms, and new science labs for grades 5 through 8. The notable Country School Star engraved in the terrazzo floor adjoins the lobby of both the new upper school and the renovated lower school.

Project Challenges & Solutions

  • The project site was limited for ease of access and construction equipment. Additionally, there was a lot of foot traffic due to school in operation and pedestrians. Safety was a main priority which was reviewed daily.
  • Due to the strict timeline and multiple phases, team members worked numerous shifts including premium time, and scopes were broken up and managed by multiple job supervision teams.
