Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Baltimore City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke, and Baltimore City Public Schools CEO Dr. AndrĂ©s A. Alonso all attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Waverly Elementary/Middle School on Tuesday, June 5, 2012. This celebration marks the first new school building construction in Baltimore since 1998.

JMT is excited to provide on-site construction management services to monitor progress and maintain the construction schedule, including two full-time and one part-time staff members. 

The new, three story building will combine the existing Waverly Middle School and Elementary School into a single, expanded educational facility based on the City Schools model. The $26 million, 118,000 square foot facility, located at 3400 Ellerslie Avenue, will be LEED Silver certified and include both a 'green' roof and an underground parking garage. The project will be constructed in two phases to allow the existing Waverly Middle and Elementary Schools to remain in operation throughout the project. 

Phase 1 is scheduled to be completed in December 2013.
