Edgemoor provided development, design, construction, and finance services as the turnkey developer and worked with Falls Church to determine the most viable site location and program for this 131,000 SF middle school.
Through innovative placement of this new school on existing City property, the ultimate delivery of the school saved the school system two years and $10 million. This was the first P3 project in Virginia to build an educational facility using the Public-Private Educational Facilities Infrastructure Act (PPEA) of 2002. Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School features technologically advanced flexible-learning environments. In addition to classrooms, the program includes a cafeteria/ auditorium, gymnasium, art lab, library, media production area, and science and computer rooms.
