Marrillia Constructs the New Perry Elementary for JCPS

Over two years of relentless hard work culminated in the completion of the new 79,000 square foot Perry Elementary for Jefferson County Public Schools. This new elementary school marked the first new JCPS school to open in Louisville’s west end in the 21st century.

Over 600 students attend the new Perry Elementary, many from Louisville’s California and Russell neighborhoods. The school’s connection to the YMCA (another Marrillia project) provides student access to facilities like a new gym and swimming pool.   

Our kids deserve this brand new school. Kids in west Louisville deserve to have great facilities”

Dr. Marty Pollio – Superintendent, JCPS

Meeting Deadlines and Ready for Students

Marrillia was successful in meeting the tight deadline to welcome students for the first day of school.  Under the leadership of FaLena Perry, Marrillia’s Vice President of Construction Louisville/Southern Indiana Office and Project Manager, Reed Rexroat the construction process was meticulously managed to ensure a successful completion.  The project was designed by the Louisville based Luckett & Farley.

Making a difference in communities with the projects we deliver is a bedrock principle at Marrillia.”

Building for the Future

Marrillia Design and Construction’s partnership with JCPS is core to the success of our Louisville Office.  We look forward to continuing this strong partnership by enhancing the facilities for students and faculty across this amazing school district.

Buildings are important, buildings are critical. It is symbolic to the kids when they walk in this school and they know we are investing in them.”
