Adolfson & Peterson (AP) and Candeo Schools have recently completed the expansion and renovation of Candeo North Scottsdale located at 7191 Ashler Hills Drive in Scottsdale, Ariz. The project included the construction of two buildings, various cosmetic and structural renovations to the existing campus, and upgrades to the school’s outdoor and recreation areas.

The project was built in two phases. Phase I included remodeling the school’s existing administration building, painting and sealing the concrete floors, renovating the courtyard, expanding the playground, landscaping the play field, and upgrading the parking lot.

Phase II included construction of the two new facilities: a 7,902-sf building and a 2,470-sf building. The 7,902-sf building provides the school with six new classrooms, restrooms, a break room, storage closets, and lockers. The 2,470-sf building offers three additional classrooms, a fire riser room, a mechanical room, and an electrical closet. Phase II also included the construction of a covered courtyard for students and staff.

Despite the pandemic, the project was completed three months ahead of schedule.
