Richland County CUSD #1 has partnered with Poettker’s Construction Management team for a new 16,400-SF single-story Early Learning Pre-K center that will create more space for the district’s Pre-Kindergarteners and consolidate the elementary school and the Early Learning Center into one campus.

Key project components included:

  • Seven preschool learning areas;
  • Play areas;
  • Indoor multi-purpose area that will also serve as an ICC 500 shelter area;

This is the 2nd project in which Poettker has served as Richland County CUSD’s Construction Manager.

Campus Reorganization

ICC 500 Shelter Area 

I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished with the two construction projects. Besides a pandemic, school construction has dominated most of my work over the past 4-5 years. I am grateful to have had the partnership with Poettker to ease the load. I truly believe your statement, “Our quality relationships build your quality projects” is more than a slogan. My experience has been that this is truly the culture of the organization.
