Montgomery County Public Schools is set to open another elementary school in the Clarksburg Cluster.

The Clarksburg Master Plan, approved in 1994, allows for the potential development of 15,000 housing units. Development of this community resulted in the formation of a new cluster of schools. The continued growth in elementary school enrollment between 2011 and 2016 justifies the need for the opening of another elementary school in the Clarsksburg Cluster. The new elementary school is intended to relieve overutilization at Cedar Grove, Clarksburg, and Little Bennett elementary schools. (Reference: Montgomery County Government) Clarksburg Cluster Elementary School will utilize the MCPS elementary school prototype building design that was successfully implemented at Great Seneca Creek, William B. Gibbs, Jr., Little Bennett, and Wilson Wims elementary schools with modifications necessary to adapt to the site conditions. Following the guideline provided in the Regulation FAA-RA Long-range Educational Facilities Planning, the proposed new facility will be designed for a capacity of 741 students including the core spaces. The building design will encourage a flexible approach to accommodate the educational program and maximum connectivity to the surrounding physical environment. Each instructional area will have adequate learning spaces, work areas, restrooms, and storage facilities. (Full Details on MCPS) Clarksburg Cluster Elementary School is set to open in August 2019.

Scope of Work

Our team of building science experts will be installing an air barrier. The reason why air barriers are used in hospitals is that the vapor barrier impedes the transfer of water vapor. Where it is placed in an assembly and its accessibility is a function of climate, the characteristics of the materials that comprise the assembly and the interior conditions.
