The new Madison school replacement project has just reached the conclusion of the milestone we call “Design Development” or DD. At this point the design of the building and site are fairly well established including the site plan, floor plans, exterior elevations as well as defined structural, mechanical and electrical systems. The schedule is aggressive and kicks off as soon as the building is vacated at the end of this school year. It is anticipated that MVSD will have 2 weeks to move, store or surplus before the process of demolition begins. As this time approaches more information about this process and exact timing will be brought to staff’s attention. The construction of the new Madison school will begin the summer of 2018 and be ready for occupancy by fall 2019.
