Ground Broken on Juliette Low Elementary


Savannah, Georgia –  A groundbreaking ceremony was held Friday to celebrate the start of construction for the new Juliette Low Elementary School, on Blue Ridge Avenue. Hussey Gay Bell provided architectural and engineering designs for this new, $24M, 950-student elementary school of approximately 127,855 SF. Core spaces to accommodate 1,000 FTE. The school will be relocated into on-site portables during the school year while the existing school is being removed and the replacement school is built in its place.  Once completed, students from Thunderbolt Elementary will also attend the multi-million dollar facility.

“I am looking forward to our students having an opportunity to receive an education in this state of art, because in conducive environments, students learn best. We are just excited about having the opportunity to get a new school to service students in this area,” said Pamela West, Principal, Juliette Low Elementary School.

The project, funded by ESPLOST, is targeted for completion in August of 2017.  It is being constructed by Savannah-based, JE Dunn Construction Company.
