New Edison Building Steeled for Next Phase

New South Eugene neighborhood school is one step closer to reality

The temperature is not the only thing rising on the Edison construction site. Construction crews have been hard at work on the site creating the new state-of-the-art building for the neighborhood school, with construction manager / general contractor John Hyland Construction leading the work.

With the foundations, stem walls, first-floor slab, underground utilities and gymnasium walls in place, crews are able to focus on erecting the “skeleton” for the new building. The gym is concrete but the rest of the building is constructed with steel framing.

Currently, the building is shaping up with the installation of steel framing for the second floor and roof structure. As the second floor comes together on the eastern side of the site, crews will begin erecting steel steadily towards the west. Workers are following the framing crews and putting down steel decking in preparation for pouring the 2nd-floor concrete slab.

The following are a collection of photos taken from winter to early summer, showcasing the hard work of local construction contractors creating the new school building at the Edison site.


While construction of the new school continues, Edison teachers and students have relocated to the former Willard school site at 29th & Lincoln for two years. After the new Edison building is completed and opens in fall 2022, Camas Ridge Elementary School will occupy the swing school for two years during the construction of the new Camas Ridge building.

Voters in Eugene School District 4J resoundingly passed the school bond measure in November 2018 to fund capital improvements for 4J schools. In addition to constructing a new building for Edison Elementary School, bond funds will be used to construct new school buildings for North Eugene High School and Camas Ridge Elementary School, expand Gilham Elementary School, and make other capital improvements across the district. Every school will benefit.
