(6/14/2014) - One of MMS Consultants’ largest projects in the summer of 2014 is the South Elementary School on Sycamore Street SE in Iowa City. MMS, in partnership with OPN Architects of Cedar Rapids, is providing the Iowa City Community School District with a site grading package and civil design services.
MMS surveyed and platted the site. We then designed plans for grading, stormwater management, sanitary sewer and water main, and parking and playground paving.
Scott Pottorff, PE and MMS’ lead project manager on this project, said the greatest challenge here is coordinating the work with improvements to Sycamore Street, which the City of Iowa City had designed separately.
Grading has begun, and once construction of this $14 million project is complete, the school will house 500 elementary students. The school is projected to open in fall 2015.
