Project Details

We partnered with the Greendale School District to engage the community in a two-year district-wide facility study through interactive work sessions, focus groups, school tours, and surveys. The study led to a successful $33.8 million referendum vote to address facility needs at its three elementary schools, middle school, and high school.

Improvements are a new athletic entry, a renovated library and media center, a new performing arts wing, and multiple security upgrades to provide a safe and welcoming place for students and the community.

We also designed an addition with a band room, mezzanine for instrument storage, practice rooms, a band office, and a scene shop used for marching band set builds. The scene shop allows parent support groups of the marching band to access the space after school hours without having to enter the rest of the building.
