APEX, N.C. (July 25, 2017) – Bobbitt Design Build recently broke ground on Creative Schools’ eighth location in the greater Triangle region, with the newest preschool at 1201 Old Raleigh Road in the heart of downtown Apex. The 9,168-square-foot preschool will deliver quality, curriculum-based, child care to the Apex community and beyond.
Creative Schools, which is a family-run North Carolina based child care provider, approached Bobbitt to construct the new facility. Due to past relationships with Bobbitt employees, Creative Schools Vice President Brad Hester knew of Bobbitt’s experience with building child care facilities and proven history of completing projects on time and within budget.
“Bobbitt has been great to work with,” said Hester. “They’ve exceeded my expectations, and I look forward to working with them again.”
The single-story preschool will reside on 3.5-acre corner lot and feature eight classrooms, including a nursery. There will also be a reception area, warming kitchen, recreation room and state-of-the-art playground.
Creative Schools will have two entry points – one off Old Raleigh Road and the other off Apex Peakway – offering easy access to the site. The City of Apex requires the landscape be kept natural, so the building will be placed off the main road covered by a tree canopy. The project requires extensive road work on a busy highway, but Bobbitt has risen to the challenge in order to move onward to the next phase of construction.
Construction is expected to be complete by August 2017.
