Work looking great on Great Work Montessori

Supporters celebrate final beam placement


On Nov. 3, students, teachers, families from Great Work Montessori School and Himmelman Construction workers and staff gathered at the future home of the school at 5300 W. Center Ave.

in east Lakewood to celebrate the placement of one of the structure’s final beams. 

This new 40,000 square foot, 3-story educational facility was designed by MOA Architecture of Denver and its its first year, the capacity for this new charter school will be 250 students ranging from 12 months through third grade.

The new school includes ten classrooms, a library, multiple common areas, a cafeteria, and approximately 3.5 acres of outdoor learning environments. Multiple modular buildings are planned at an adjacent farm property for the development of the school’s future farming program. 

Everyone on hand signed the beam before it was set in place.

“This is a milestone in the building of the school,” said

Eric Kriebel, Senor Project Superintendent with

Himmelman Construction. “We’ve completed one of the hardest parts of the construction.”
