PGCPS Cherokee Lane
Prince Georges County Public Schools (PGCPS) lacked greenfield sites for construction of new schools. Solution? Build on current schoolgrounds and use off-site construction to minimize disruption to daily operations of nearby teachers and students. The Cherokee Lane Elementary School prototype proved the validity of this approach. While classes continued less than 100 yards from construction, a new 100,000 SF school was built in record time for an on-time opening in fall of 2022.
