The Interboro (Pa.) district has broken ground on an extensive renovation of Interboro High School in Prospect Park.

The Delaware County Daily Times reports that the $73 million project that will renovate and expand the 197,000-square-foot building, which is nearly 50 years old.

Interboro High has about 1,100 students. The building is being reimagined to provide a 21st-century learning environment to go along with new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, officials say.

The renovation will reconfigure all interior spaces and add 40,400 square feet of new space. Additions include a new cafeteria and art and science labs on the south side of the building.

The north side of the building will house a new administration area and STEAM classrooms.

Superintendent Bernadette Reiley said the project will take three years to complete, with work beginning on the new structures.

“The structure of the building was very good, so it wasn’t really necessary to do a new building,” Reiley said.

KCBA Architects is the designer on the project.

To manage the construction during the school year the project will phase in with the new exterior wings starting first. This will enable the district to avoid temporary classrooms.
