Pleasant Grove Elementary Renovation Plan

  • In November 2018, Alamance County voters overwhelmingly approved the ABSS School Construction Bond of $150 million, the largest school bond in the community’s history. Nine bond projects were approved, including construction of a new high school between Eastern and Southern high schools, and a slate of extensive school renovations, additions and improvements at 8 existing ABSS schools, including Pleasant Grove Elementary (PGE). The historic PGE campus is currently under construction with nearly $6.5 million in major improvements. Major campus upgrades at PGE as part of the bond package will include: complete replacement of the HVAC system (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), major electrical system upgrade, door and window replacement, flooring replacement & bathroom renovations.

    Renovations and demolition for the Pleasant Grove project started during the summer of 2021 and are scheduled to be completed by June, 2023. Security, intercom, and fire alarm installation, flooring and final finishes around the PGE campus are scheduled for completion in June 2023.

    Main Electrical Switchgear: The installation of the main electrical switchgear is the first phase of the electrical upgrade and is scheduled for completion in winter 2022.This project will not impact any of the learning areas on campus during construction.

    K-2 Wing: This area will receive a new heating and cooling duct system, new electrical receptacles, switches, wiring, lighting, and bathroom renovations. The work will begin during the summer of 2022 and is scheduled for completion for this area in August 2022.

    K-2 Wing Impact: The K-2 wing will experience minimal to light impact during this project. The district has been able to schedule the majority of the upgrades to classroom learning environments during times that students will not be present.  

    3-5 Wing: This area will receive a new heating and cooling duct system, new lighting and electrical service upgrades, bathroom renovations, and new casework (storage, cabinetry, etc.) throughout the classrooms. Work in this area is scheduled to begin during the summer of 2022 with project completion December 2022.

    3-5 Wing Impact: The amount of demolition required in this area of the building along with the extent of upgrades to learning spaces will take more construction time than the typical ten week summer work period between school years and will require relocation of students and staff in this portion of the building. The complexity of the upgrades will create extended periods of time with limited and/or no heat/air conditioning and electricity in our grades 3-5 learning spaces.

    South Mebane Elementary (SME) was the first school construction bond project in the series to begin and will be the first project totally completed. With the completion of renovations at SME and the school’s close proximity to PGE, temporarily relocating PGE 3-5 students and staff beginning in August 2022 until January 2023 will complete the major renovation projects, provide a quality learning space for our PGE students and staff and minimize the impact to families.
