Lend/Lease Construction to build Hagerstown school

Lend/Lease Construction, a unit of an Australian real estate and infrastructure development company, has been selected by the Washington County Board of Education to build a school to replace the 81-year-old Bester Elementary School in Hagerstown.

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reported Lend/Lease’s bid of $1.38 million was the lowest of four bids received for the construction management contract. Lend/Lease’s office in Rockville will coordinate the construction.

Construction of the 72,000-square-foot replacement school is expected to begin in July 2012 and be completed in the spring of 2014. Grimm + Parker Architects of Calverton designed the new building.
