Bray Architects assisted the Wheatland J1 School District to successfully pass their referendum in April 2018. The facilities referendum included renovations and a two-classroom addition for Wheatland Center School, which serves over 500 students in kindergarten through 8th grade.
Renovations to the Wheatland Center School will feature safety and security upgrades, including installing security cameras, expanding and improving the front offices and redesigning the parking lot to separate pedestrian and vehicle traffic. The library will also receive significant renovations to become a more dynamic space with opportunities for collaboration, small group instruction and access to technology. Another focus of the updates will be STEM spaces throughout the school. A new computer lab, tech ed space and renovated science labs will allow students to gain hands-on, application-based learning experiences and prepare for future careers.
The addition and renovation at Wheatland Center School will not only update the older areas of the building in terms of building systems and today’s ADA compliance, but will also provide students with spaces that meet the demands of today’s curriculum. Construction is anticipated to begin October 2018.
