In 2014, Bray Architects collaborated with the School District of Black River Falls to conduct a district-wide facility study, which revealed significant needs at the high school and resulted in the creation of a master plan.
The high school project involved a combination of new construction and extensive renovation, receiving a 10,700 square foot addition and undergoing over 10,400 square feet of renovation. Construction included the creation of a new secure entry vestibule, agriculture classroom, and greenhouse. Among the project’s renovations were the relocation of the school offices (adjacent to the new entry), the conversion of the existing school offices into classroom space, existing guidance offices into science labs, and academic classrooms into Special Education spaces. The existing cafeteria was also expanded and renovated, while the existing kitchen was outfitted with a dedicated servery and expanded production capacity.
Significant site improvements were also made, including a reconfigured access drive and parking on the south side
of the school campus.
