On Saturday, August 29th, Bayer Private School in Glendale celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony only 20 weeks after groundbreaking. Under what most would consider an impossible timeline to design and construct, the Design-Build collaboration between GCON and DLR Group provided Bayer students and faculty and on-time start to the 2015-2016 school year.
“We were honored to be chosen as the general contractor to build this extraordinary school,” says Michael Godbehere, GCON President. “We knew this was a tight schedule and it would require a truly collaborative effort from the entire project team to make sure we were ready for the school year.”
This beautiful two-story, 20,000 SF school consists of administration offices, support spaces and eight regular and two specialty classrooms. The project was constructed with high-end residential features to fit into the surrounding community incorporating Santa Barbara architectural features. The school can serve up to 440 students from pre-K through 8th grade.
