Project Overview

Sunburst Elementary is located at 2504 West Sunburst Drive (400 S.) in Layton.

Groundbreaking for the site was held on May 22, 2019. This elementary will be the fourth repeat of the current district prototype (Odyssey Elementary). The school opened for students in August of 2020. 

The new building consists of 32 classrooms, multi-purpose room, dining room/commons, media center and a maker space.  It also includes a training room to support the Teacher Academy program at the school, allowing student teachers to participate in classroom learning and training on site. The new building also has photo voltaic panels on the roof to generate the same amount of electricity used by the building. 

Prior to construction, the District Professional Services selection committee evaluated three general contractors to be the Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) for the project. Contractors were scored on their qualifications, interviewed, and their fees were evaluated. Hughes General Contractor was selected and approved by the Board of Education.

Hughes General Contractors, in the capacity of General Contractor for the new Layton elementary, received bids from the sub-contractors. The bid prices created the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) for the project.
