Project Overview

The new Elementary #63 will be located at 2504 West Sunburst Drive (400 S.) in Layton.

Groundbreaking for the site was held on May 22, 2019. Construction on the new building has begun and is anticipated to be complete by June of 2020. This elementary will be the fourth repeat of the current district prototype (Odyssey Elementary). The school will be ready for students in August of 2020. 

The new building will consist of 32 classrooms, multi-purpose room, dining room/commons, media center and a maker space.  It will contain spaces to house university faculty, students, and lecture space. The new building will also have photo voltaic panels on the roof to generate the same amount of electricity that will be used by the building. Furniture and equipment set up will take place over the summer of 2020. The school will be ready for students in August of 2020. 

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.
