The Byron Center (Mich.) district has broken ground on an intermediate school for grades 5 and 6.

The Nickels Intermediate 5/6 building will have 125,000 square feet of space and will hold 850 students with room for future growth, reports the Grand Rapids Business Journal.

The building will have innovative classroom spaces; science lab and STEM classrooms; breakout spaces for individualized learning; a full-size gym; and choir, band and art spaces.

In addition to building a modernized learning space, there will be a focus on the safety and security of the students with secure vestibules, access control and surveillance cameras.

The building is part of an $80.1 million bond program that voters approved in 2020. The intermediate school is scheduled for completion for the 2023-24 school year.
