Alvin H. Butz, Inc. Awarded Renovations for New Allentown School District High School

Allentown, PA, March 30, 2015 . . . Alvin H. Butz, Inc., part of The Butz Family of Companies, was recently awarded renovations to a new high school for the Allentown School District in Allentown, PA.

The new high school is a partnership between the school district and Building 21, an organization that partners with communities and school districts to design, open and operate new high schools.

"Our priority first and foremost is to continuously find ways to improve the quality of education that our students receive," said Chip Linehan, Co-Founder of Building 21. "Given Butz' extensive track record with schools and educational facilities, we felt they were the CM best equipped to carry out these renovations and help us realize that goal."

The $1,500,000 project will be broken down into two phases and involves 35,000 square-feet of renovations to the existing building, which is located at 265 Lehigh Street. It will initially house 150 9th graders before gradually increasing capacity to 600 students over a four-year period.

Features of Phase I include:

  • 12 Classrooms and 1 Laboratory
  • Cafeteria/Serving Kitchen
  • Administrative Offices
  • Nurse's Office
Construction work will be completed over a three-month period in summer, with completion of Phase I expected in August 2015. Phase II will be completed in Summer 2016.

"We welcome the opportunity to work with Building 21 and the Allentown School District on these latest renovations," said Greg L. Butz, President and CEO of Alvin H. Butz, Inc. "Butz is always looking to be part of projects that help improve our community's youth education."
