A new 55,000 square foot, steel-framed school for Knik Goose Bay Elementary was built to accommodate the continuing growth of the Kink-Fairview community. A construction team of experts were chosen to manage the fast-track schedule expectations of less than one-year duration; typical school construction can take up to two years to complete.
Stearns was approached by UNIT Company to supply the structural steel and miscellaneous elements and manage and coordinate logistical issues to ensure materials were delivered to the site at the required time.
