IDLA worked closely with a committee comprised of school district personnel, school administrators, parents, and community leaders. Through value engineering, opening communication, and close construction monitoring, IDLA was able to keep the school well under budget and all committee members satisfied with the end product.

On August 4, 2010, team members from IDLA attended the State Route 215 and Highway 74 Interchange Dedication and Highway 74 Phase II and III Kickoff, where IDLA was recognized for its important role in this ongoing development.
