CONSTRUCTION OF THE FACILITYConstruction of the Center Grove Innovation Center was divided into two phases. The first phase involved renovation of the existing facility. The second phase included the addition of the collaboration areas and STEM Labs. Both phases were completed for the start of the 2016-17 school year.
FACILITY COSTThe Center Grove Board of School Trustees approved a bid from J.M. Rowland Construction in the amount of $1,999,000 for the project. Funding for that bid will be obtained through a General Obligation bond. In August 2015, the Board approved a recommendation by CSO Architects to modify the project and exclude some items that could eliminated without compromising the integrity or original design of the project. These changes reduced the project cost by $99,175, which brought the cost down to $1,899,825.ENDRESS+HAUSER DONATES $10,000 FOR STEM EDUCATION
