Detroit Edison Public School Academy
State: Michigan Completed: 2012
Providing a learning environment that students can thrive in is the goal of the Detroit Edison Public School Academy (DEPSA). Kerkstra Precast provided precast wall panels and hollowcore floor plank for the newest addition to the DEPSA community.
This high school is the first school to be fully funded from a grant by Excellent Schools Detroit. This group is seeking to open 70 new schools for Detroit kids by the year 2020. The DEPSA high school is a great flagship school for the program. Its precast construction is durable, cost effective and was installed quickly allowing the school to open for students as quick as possible.
Bouma Construction has completed several schools using Kerkstra Precast structural precast panels and has been very satisfied with both theproduct and the staff at Kerkstra. Their “can do” attitude throughout the design and construction process helped us to successfully meet client needs and remain within the budget.
