As part of the renovations, a new consolidated library for elementary and high school students was created in the former kitchen/cafeteria area, and a new kitchen and cafeteria were created where there were formerly three classrooms. The 35,400 SF of new addition included a new main building entrance, bus loop, four new general classrooms, three science rooms, two technology rooms, a gymnasium and locker rooms. Consolidated into a centrally located administrative suite were the District Offices, Guidance Offices, Nurses Suite and Building Offices.
Site improvements included acquisition and development of 90 acres of property on which new athletic playing fields were constructed. Also included were outdoor tennis and basketball courts and a new 140 vehicle parking lot. Renovations to the bus garage and maintenance building were also included in this project.
This project’s phasing was challenging due to the extensive site and interior renovation work that had to be accomplished in a short construction season during school breaks, but which was successfully completed on time.
