The new Talley Street Upper Elementary school for the City Schools of Decatur is currently underway and set to be completed summer 2019. Balfour Beatty is proud to be providing construction management services for such an important and much-needed elementary school project for the City of Decatur community and families. When completed, Talley Street will be the first new elementary school built for the City Schools of Decatur since the early 1970s.
The new school will include two two-story classroom wings with a courtyard between the west wing and the south side of campus. In addition, there will be a 40,000-square-foot play field, garden, a playground area and space for future classroom expansion. Over half of the six-acre site will be green space, preserving the existing tree canopy.
The anticipated enrollment for the 2019/2020 school year is 750 students.
