Summary: Per School Board policy, the Board must approve the schematic and design development plans of major construction projects. A schematic design of the Crozet Elementary Additions & Renovations was approved on May 28, 2020.

This project will add an estimated 35,000 gross square foot in total additions to the building as well as making improvements to the existing building and site. The additions will include a net gain of 16 classrooms, 1 special education classroom, 2 smaller resource classrooms, 2 conference rooms, 2 offices, a faculty workroom and various support spaces. The additions will also expand the kitchen and cafeteria; a new replacement kitchen will be built and additional dining space will occupy the former kitchen footprint. The media center will be expanded within the existing school to support the larger student enrollment. Other improvements to the existing building will include the replacement of the existing HVAC system serving the existing classrooms, improved internal circulation (including ADA upgrades), and improvements to existing administration, support spaces and toilets. Site improvements will include outdoor learning areas, new and expanded bus drop-off, additional parking, additional playground equipment, and the replacement of a paved play area.

VMDO Architects was contracted for the project and design work began in mid-March of 2020. The original schedule for this project is as follows, but is subject to funding for construction:
• Design: March – December 2020
• Bidding & Contracting: January – April 2021
• Construction: May 2021 – August 2022
• Open for the 2022/23 School Year

VMDO will present the Design Development Plans and budget scenarios.
