***Postponed due to weather***

The Souderton Area School District will hold a groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, June 5th at 2:20p.m. commemorating the second phase of the E. Merton Crouthamel Elementary School project at 143 South School Lane, Souderton, PA.  This project phase will replace modular classrooms with permanent classroom spaces, the conversion of the existing multi-purpose room into a library and small group instruction areas, the relocation of the playground and additional parking.  The project will also create a new multi-purpose room that will have a distinct cafeteria and gymnasium. 

The second phase of the project follows work completed last summer that included plumbing and HVAC renovations, ADA accessibility improvements, new energy efficient windows and shades, LED lighting, and new classroom doors and wall coverings.  E. Merton Elementary School was built in 1962 and while a few miscellaneous improvements were made over the years, the school has never had a significant renovation to the building.

The Souderton Area Board of School Directors approved the second phase at its April 27, 2017 Board Action Meeting by awarding the general construction of the project to Rampart Construction Company, Inc., Summit, NJ and the electrical construction to MJF Electrical Contracting, Inc., Morrisville, PA.  Godshall Kane O’Rourke, Ambler, PA is the architect of the project and Reynolds Construction Management, Harrisburg, PA is construction manager.  The school will remain open and operable during the estimated 18-month project.

This event is open to the public
