Wasatch Elementary School Replacement
Clearfield, Utah
Davis School District
Clearfield, Utah
78,000 sf

Wasatch Elementary School not only houses 650 K-6 students but also supports the Davis Community Learning Center (DCLC), a partnership of Davis School District, United Way of Salt Lake and several community resource agencies. Coordination and cooperation with these multiple public sector agencies was critical to the project’s realization. To reduce the project’s cost as well as its physical impact on the local community, this 78,000 SF structure was built adjacent to the existing school structure and site on property then occupied by Clearfield City Park. Construction was carefully phased to allow students continued attendance at the existing facility throughout construction of the new to avoid relocation of the students away from their community. Upon completion of the new building, the existing was demolished to make way for improved playground and outdoor learning areas and the adjacent relocation and upgrade of the Clearfield City Park. This new adjacency greatly enhanced function and promoted increased use of both playground and park facilities by the community.
