Solanco School District – Providence Elementary School – Lancaster County, PA

Providence Elementary School was one of two elementary schools within the Solanco School District that required substantial upgrades to meet state educational standards. A 17,700 square-foot expansion was approved to accommodate a new lobby, library, computer center, gymnasium, art room and music room. Also, two new playgrounds, additional parking areas, and improved bus access/circulation driveways were part of the District’s project requirements.

As a subconsultant to the architectural firm, Herbert, Rowland & Grubic, Inc. (HRG) performed the necessary site design/civil engineering services for this project. The collaborative efforts of the Solanco School District, architectural firm, and HRG ensured that the District’s requirements were addressed, as well as enabling this project to be successfully completed on time and within budget.

  • Identified zoning issues and prepared the application for the zoning hearing board
  • Attended township meetings to secure approvals
