ICI completed a $5.5 million addition and renovation project to North Palos School District 117’s Sorrick Elementary School in late summer 2011. The expansion houses a new Early Learning Center. Improvements were also made to the school’s 3.1 acre site including new utilities, water main, a detention pond and new bus access and drop off lanes for the school. In order to accommodate the District’s schedule, ICI managed construction of the 10-month project through the winter months.

The new 16,285 SF single-story addition onto the existing school added new kindergarten and ELL classrooms, new reading rooms and a media center, along with a new Art and Music room and a new warehouse space and bathrooms.

Within the existing, 43,325 SF, school, International Contractors worked on life-safety and sprinkler upgrades.

ICI worked closely with the Owner and Design Team to provide preconstruction budgeting services. Through project alternates and creative value engineering, the team provided a new, 500 foot long, two-lane parkway improvement to separate bus traffic from student drop off traffic, without increasing the original budget.
