Carl A. Nelson & Company was selected by the Burlington Community School District to be the general contractor for construction of Aldo Leopold Intermediate School. CANCO self-performed 28% of the job, including concrete foundations, installation of metal studs, rough carpentry, door installation, finish carpentry, and specialties.
The building includes a three-story academic wing where each floor features classrooms arranged around a central commons. An adjacent two-story section of the building includes specialty classrooms for industrial technology and family and consumer science, as well as art room and gymnasium.
The main office, library, cafeteria and counseling offices adjoin a spacious main entrance. The east wing of the school includes band and choir rooms, as well as an auditorium with stage and retractable seating that allows the space to be used as a multi-purpose room.
Outside is a middle school-regulation football field and gravel track for after-school sports and physical fitness classes. The property also features an outdoor classroom in honor of the building’s namesake, the naturalist Aldo Leopold, a Burlington native.
