Mayor Cahill, Superintendent Richard Kaplan and New Jersey Schools Development Authority (SDA) CEO Marc Larkins joined New Brunswick third grade students in a “beam signing” ceremony to highlight the progress of construction for the new A. Chester Redshaw Elementary School.
The students, teachers and officials celebrated the ongoing construction of the facility by signing a steel beam that will be hoisted into place as a permanent part of the new 135,000 square-foot facility that will educate approximately 900 students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grades. Construction on the new facility began in March 2013 and its completion is anticipated in time for the start of the September 2014 school year.
The new A. Chester Redshaw Elementary School will include 46 classrooms, 12 classrooms for special education, basic skills and small group instruction, a cafeteria, a multipurpose room with stage, gymnasium, media center, art room and a music room. Hall Construction Company, Inc. anticipates completion of the new facility for the 2014-2015 school year.
