Project Details

The Mill Street Elementary School addition and renovation was part of a $114.9M overall capital improvement program developed by Wight & Company which addressed the District’s most pressing facilities needs. The challenge at Mill Street was to double the size of the school through reorganization of existing space to provide more efficient use of available square footage, and design an addition that would support the District’s expanded program offerings. Project highlights include:

  • Addition of a 15,000 SF gymnasium and cafeteria/multi-purpose area
  • Addition of a kindergarten classroom
  • Repurposing of the existing gymnasium/cafeteria to provide additional instructional space
  • Renovation of the building’s core centered around the Learning Resource Center
  • Reconfiguration and expansion of Administrative Suite
  • Site enhancements for student safety and improved traffic flow
