The Yu Ying Charter School, a Chinese immersion charter school, fosters a multicultural and bilingual educational environment for pre-kindergarten through fifth-grade students. Once finished, the new three-story, 30,000-square-foot early learning center will offer a modern learning environment with classrooms and playgrounds. The building will have a green roof and will target LEED Gold certification.
“We are thrilled to break ground on Yu Ying Charter School’s new campus in Washington, D.C.,” said Tyler Swartzwelder, Vice President and Business Leader for Gilbane Building Company in Washington, D.C. “This project represents our commitment to building exceptional charter school facilities throughout the DMV. We look forward to continuing our close partnership with Yu Ying, Level Field Partners, JEB Consulting Group, Page, and the community to deliver a state-of-the-art facility to serve future generations.”
The facility will be completed on a fast-track construction schedule, including hardscaping, landscaping, and bioretention pond creation. Gilbane is preparing to deliver the project for the 2024-2025 school year. This project is located on a shared campus with the Washington Latin Charter School, requiring constant communication between the two project teams through design, construction, and turnover.
