School officials ceremonially broke ground on a new library and classroom building at Lincoln Middle School in Santa Monica March 13.
The $16 million project began in December and is anticipated to be completed in September 2014.
The groundbreaking was attended by Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District Board President Laurie Lieberman, Superintendent Sandra Lyon, Principal Suzanne Webb, and Stuart Sam, director of the facility improvement projects.
The project has been split into three phases. The first phase was the installation of two relocated classrooms, a temporary library, and a new six-inch fire main line to service the upcoming library and classroom building, which was completed in January 2011. The second phase, completed in December 2011, included renovating the former library and three classrooms into four new classrooms, two science labs and a shared prep room.
“The construction that has been completed so far at Lincoln Middle School has brought student, staff and family excitement towards learning. We cannot wait for the next phase to be completed,” Webb said.
The final and current phase includes removing Classroom Building C and replacing it with a new building that will house a library, chorus room, six classrooms, two science labs with a shared prep room, and two restrooms. Outdoor improvements include an outdoor classroom with tiered seating and a new library entrance on 14th Street.
School officials say the construction project incorporates green technology and meets Collaborative for High Performance Schools criteria with the use of natural lighting, natural ventilation, maximized energy efficiency, storm water treatment and reduced water use.
“We are looking forward to the completion of the new library and classroom building and the benefits it will have on current and future students,” Sam said.
