Burrell Elementary School had no major renovations since it was constructed in 1967 when it opened and the building was undersized to accommodate the PreK-4 students. The renovation project transformed the school into a 21st-century learning environment, adding classroom space for the PreK program, and a new gymatorium. Classrooms were renovated to meet MSBA recommended sizes and reorganized to meet programmatic changes. 

The entrance to the PreK wing is separate from the older students. Age-appropriate group learning areas are incorporated throughout the school to provide greater flexibility. The existing gymnasium was transformed into new art and music classrooms. The existing auditorium is the new learning commons. A gymatorium is located at the end of an academic wing, enabling a separate entrance for community access.

Major renovations to the building envelope included replacing  HVAC, electrical systems, windows, roof, and repairs to the exterior masonry. The security at the main entrance was improved, and a more visible approach was provided. Site improvements included renovated play areas and new parking areas. The school remained operational throughout the phased construction schedule and met NE-CHPS.
