Today’s students. Tomorrow’s workforce.

“Hensel Phelps believes in being a good neighbor, contributing its part to the community and being environmentally responsible,” says Alex Bertolini, project manager.

That’s why Hensel Phelps Construction Co. is proud to partner with The Green Schoolhouse Series and eager to show the benefactors of its inaugural Safari Schoolhouse project how exciting the construction industry can be.

The Green Schoolhouse Series is a collaboration of corporations, school districts, municipalities, foundations, communities and volunteers dedicated to building Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum-designed, high-performance, environmentally sustainable multipurpose classrooms and community centers at Title 1, low-income public schools.

This nationwide initiative is spearheaded by nonprofit organization Brighten A Life and green-minded companies and corporations such as Hensel Phelps.

“The future of building is in the construction of environmentally friendly structures, and we have placed a great deal of effort in being the builder of choice in this market,” says Bertolini.

Hensel Phelps will provide general construction management services, including constructability review, design input and on-site supervision, for the first-ever Green Schoolhouse in Phoenix, AZ.  Called the Safari Schoolhouse, this 6,000-square-foot learning facility will be built on the existing Roadrunner Elementary campus and will also be available for after-school programs and community use on nights and weekends.  The groundbreaking ceremony will be held November 30.
