Passing the Referendum

We helped the School District of Black River Falls pass a $22.5M referendum after six unsuccessful attempts with other partners. In addition to the design and construction of Red Creek Elementary School, the referendum led to secure entry renovations at the existing elementary and middle schools, and additions and renovations at the high school.


I want to tell you how incredibly appreciative I am of all Bray’s efforts! The sense of confidence that you instilled in all those that you came in contact with from Black River Falls is a credit to your professionalism and areas of expertise.
