Oostburg High School

We guided the Oostburg School District through the expansion and renovation of their high school after helping them pass a second referendum in six years.

Need: Update and expand the aging gymnasium, auditorium, library, and cafeteria

Solution: Build a gymnasium addition to the existing high school, which provides room to expand the other spaces

Result: A large, three-station gymnasium, a new auditorium in place of the former gym, a larger library to replace the former theater, and an expanded cafeteria

Project Features

We’re proud of our longstanding relationship with the Oostburg School District, one that started in the early 1960s when we helped them build the first high school building. Since then, we’ve guided the district through multiple expansions to the building. This latest round of work included:

Oostburg High School fitness center with branding
Oostburg High School library media center with students sitting and standing

Passing the Referendum

As responsible stewards of our client’s resources, we helped the Oostburg School District develop a plan to repurpose as many existing spaces as possible, rather than pursuing new construction.

This approach reduced the proposed project cost by millions of dollars and led to a successful referendum that passed with over 60% support.
