Lamar County Head Start

Classroom and Administration Building

Paris, Texas - Completed May, 1998

Located on the campus of an existing elementary school, this free-standing, one-story, 18,548 square foot building was constructed to house a growing preschool and kindergarten program. The building includes 8 classrooms, a multi-use assembly hall, kitchen, laundry and administrative offices.

Funded in part by a federal grant, the project was constructed under a single, lump-sum contract by Songer Construction, Inc. of Terrell, Texas. Construction commenced in July, 1997 and was substantially completed in April, 1998. Since the project was built on the campus of an existing school, the work had to be carefully coordinated so as not to interfere with the school's schedule.

The Denney Architects Design Group provided architectural services as well as mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering services for the project. The final cost of the project was $1,083,530.00 ($58.42 per square foot), which was slightly under the budget of 1.1 million dollars.
