The Loudoun County School Board has hired a contractor to build the Dulles South area elementary school, known as ES-28.
The board unanimously awarded the contract to Scheibel Construction, which submitted the lowest bid of $28.31 million. The elementary school will be co-located on the John Champe High School site and have space for 928 kindergarten through fifth-grade students. It is scheduled to open in the fall of 2018.
Scheibel Construction, based in Huntingtown, MD, has built several Loudoun County schools, including John Champe High School and Cardinal Ridge Elementary School.
The board received four bids for the project, all of them fell within $1.3 million of one another. Just behind Scheibel for the next lowest bid was a bid from HESS Construction for $29.65 million.
This week, the School Board appointed several parents and school staff members to a committee who will come up a name for the school.
