The project includes consolidating pre-K through 2nd grade to the existing Benton Elementary School and construction of a new building to house grades 3-6.

STEM Solutions will be providing and installing Diversified Casework’s Flush Overlay White Maple Wood Casework, epoxy tops, and peg boards in the new building’s science labs.

“The equipment and casework we will be providing and installing is the same that is used in commercial and university lab environments,” said Ed St. Peter, STEM Solutions’ managing member. “This enables students at the elementary school level to become familiar with the same level of lab environment they will use in higher education settings and beyond.”

John Walden, regional director of Diversified Casework, added, “We are pleased to work again with STEM Solutions on this project. Our white maple wood casework line is extremely durable and ideal for the K-12 lab setting.”
