Charles and Anna Booker School

Under a design-build contract with the New Jersey Schools Development Authority (NJSDA), DMR is serving as the design consultant to the general contractor, Epic Management, for the design and construction of the new Charles and Anna Booker School in Plainfield, NJ.

The 120,000 square foot facility will be designed to educate 756 students in grades K-5. The 3-story facility will be constructed on 4.75 acres and will serve as a replacement facility for two of the district’s current schools, the Woodland Elementary School and Cook Elementary School.

The project team, which includes an extensive team of engineers and consultants, will also address challenges such as exporting unsuitable soils, de-watering activities, design and installing storm and sanitary sewers, and installing retaining walls.
