The latest project for Lusardi Construction to complete in its hometown is a 77,000 square foot elementary school complex in San Marcos consisting of two each, two-story structures. Built on a 323,000 square foot site, the two buildings are adjacent to the staff and parent parking lot to the south and east, and 90,000 square feet of play surface to the west and north. The site includes two play structures, two shade structures, playfields and a kindergarten garden.                                   
 
The project was commissioned by the San Marcos Unified School District to replace the existing San Marcos Elementary School (SMES). The original SMES buildings were constructed in 1948 and the facility also housed the San Marcos Historical Museum. The design by HMC Architects was to build a pair of two story buildings adjacent to the existing building to seamlessly transfer students from the old school to the new school. Demolition of the old school could then commence.
 

This project exemplifies what teamwork, preparation and great design can accomplish. The Lease-Leaseback method allowed Lusardi Construction to work with the design team from the beginning, defining the overall goal. Teamwork and communication by all project members were attributes applied to achieve the goal.
