DC Building Group Completes New American Leadership
Academy Charter School in North Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS – A new area charter school is now in full operation and has been welcoming students for the 2017-2018 school year. Shawn Danoski, CEO of Las Vegas-based DC Building Group, announced that his general contracting firm has completed the new American Leadership Academy (ALA) charter school in North Las Vegas.
The 72,577 square-foot school, located at 777 E. Ann Road, broke ground in March and was constructed on an accelerated schedule to meet a fall opening date. Situated on 11 acres, this ground-up Kindergarten-8th-grade charter school was constructed in just 20 weeks rather than its customary 52-week duration. DC Building Group superintendents Bill Purington and Dexter Martial coordinated with many subcontractors, vendors, and faculty members to accomplish this incredible feat. The facility consists of 42 classrooms and the enrollment capacity is 1,250 students. Carhuff & Cueva Architects served as the architect of record for the new campus.
The school’s inviting façade of brick and high concrete columns purposefully reflects a warm, colonial-style home. The modern gymnasium is fully equipped with retractable dividers, benches and basketball hoops, and two regulation size volleyball courts and two full basketball courts, a performance stage and an adjacent kitchen for cafeteria service. The main, outdoor playground is the size of football field, with natural grass, and four basketball half-court. There are designated playground areas for younger children too. All the grounds are fenced.
“We are elated to have completed American Leadership Academy to allow this premier school to open on time,” said Danoski. “We assembled a talented team to work this project as efficiently as possible seven days a week. We know that the teachers and students will have a great first school year at ALA.”
The charter school accepts students in grades K-8. ALA currently has eight charter schools in Arizona; the North Las Vegas location is the first one in the Nevada market. More information regarding ALA can be found at http://www.alanevada.org/about-us.html.
