Skilled pilots to meet your needs


Kewaskum  Schools

The Kewaskum Middle/High School project involved the construction of a 92,890 SF middle school addition that connects to the existing high school. The new facility boasts numerous collaborative learning spaces, including a new tech ed wing that combines the shop classes with an open learning concept so that staff can teach students while others are working in the shop space. In addition to other office and classroom additions, a two-story collaborative learning area opens from an outdoor auditorium up to the library.

 

 

 


Marian University

The Dr. Richard and Leslie Ridenour Science Center Addition project called for the transformation of the existing 50+ year old science building into an open, student-focused learning center. The updated facility was necessary to accommodate growth in Marian’s STEM programs, such as biology, chemistry, forensic science and math.
