Bray Architects successfully supported the Belleville School District in passing a $20,750,000 referendum question to complete an addition and renovations to the middle/high school as well relocate the early childhood and elementary grade offerings to the intermediate school.
To accommodate the early childhood and elementary grades, Bray designed a three-story 38,058 square foot addition with classrooms on the upper two levels and a serving kitchen, cafeteria, multi-purpose room and day care in the lowest level. The addition helps to achieve a more unified district with accommodation for long-range growth.
The major renovated spaces include science, art, music, library and the secure entry/office. The other classrooms, corridors and key support spaces received new finishes including flooring, ceilings, casework and paint. The entire building was provided with new heating, ventilation and air conditioning, lighting and a fire sprinkler system. Site work included a new package lot with a parent drop-off loop to separate bus traffic from parent and visitor traffic.
