Landmark Science & Engineering was hired to work with Appoquinimink School District and their project architect and construction partners to provide the civil engineering, planning and design required for construction of the new 134,678 square foot Louis L. Redding Middle School. The new school building is being built on the site of the existing school’s sports field/green space. Demolition of the existing school and other site improvements will occur after students move into the new building in August 2025.

Four Phases of Construction

The project will be constructed in four phases:

  • The first phase began in  the spring of 2023.
  • The second phase started in the summer of 2023 and included school bus areas, parent drop-off loops and student-walker paths  which were altered for use during construction.
  • The third phase will begin in August 2025 when students will move into the new school allowing for the final phase to begin.
  • The fourth phase involves demolition of the 69-year-old school and redevelopment of the original, historic parts of the entrance to create an outdoor classroom. Site improvements on the school site will also include a park, athletic areas and fields, and parking spaces. The project will conclude by fall of 2026.
