On December 4, 2020, our team proudly celebrated the grand opening of the new Austin ISD Blazier Elementary School Intermediate Site in southeast Austin. Over the past two years, American Constructors and BLGY Architecture worked on this project as part of the 2017 Bond Program, which will bring 21st-century learning spaces to students across the district.
Construction of the new, modernized Blazier Intermediate campus began in June 2019 and was completed in August 2020. The community-centered building is organized around a core that includes the cafeteria, performance stage and media center. Each academic wing connects to this core, providing easy access, staff supervision, improved circulation and increased interactions among students of all grade levels. The 132,000-square-foot campus has capacity for 696 students.
Due to COVID-19 and at-home learning, the grand opening was celebrated virtually with a school tour video featuring the principal and students, remarks from AISD leadership and a video of students sharing what they love most about their new campus. We also partnered with BLGY to provide custom water bottles to every Blazier Intermediate student to mark the special occasion.

Thank you to AISD, BLGY and the entire Blazier community for making this milestone possible! We are so thrilled to be part of this project and to welcome all the Blue Jays to their new home. We know they will make incredible memories as they prepare for college, career and life at their modernized campus.
