C.W. Driver Companies, a premier builder serving California for more than 100 years, today announced the start of construction on their newest project for Menifee Union School District, a $54.5M K-5 elementary school that will have an estimated student capacity of 600 when it opens, with completion scheduled for July of 2024.

Located in Riverside County, the planned campus will be spread across 46 acres and incorporate ample outdoor areas for physical activity and social gatherings.

The new construction will include 23 classrooms, a kindergarten building, an administration building, library, food service kitchen and multipurpose room, with the various buildings laid out in a horseshoe configuration. Plans include a modern multipurpose room with a state-of-the art audio visual system, play and track fields, and playgrounds for children’s recreation. There will also be a 106-stall parking lot with student pickup and drop off areas. The project scope will also require various off-site improvements, including street improvements to Wickerd Road. The architect is DLR Group | BakerNowicki.
