St. James’ breaking ground for school wing on Thursday
The 10,000-square-food, two-story addition should be complete by fall 2018.
Saint James’ Episcopal Church and School in Warrenton will conduct a ground-breaking ceremony for a new educational at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 14.
The 10,000-square-foot wing will be completed before the start of the 2018 fall school term. It will be the first new building on the 73 Culpeper St. property since 1967.
Half of the addition will house five elementary classrooms, a main school office, a more defined school entrance and an elevator. The remaining 5,000 square feet will be a basement designated for future space. The two-story wing will extend from the existing building, parallel to South Third Street.
The Right Rev. Edwin F. “Ted” Gulick, Warrenton Mayor Powell Duggan, Head of School Stacey Irvin, The Rev. Ben Maas, rector of Saint James’, and members of the church and school community, will take part in the groundbreaking.
Kerns Group Architects of Falls Church designed the addition, which Whitener& Jackson of Manassas will build.
