Envisioning a new, sustainable future for a public charter school on Chicago’s North Side.

The Chicago Mathematics and Science Academy (CMSA) selected Wight & Company to provide design-build services for the renovation of an existing one-story masonry building that had once been a shopping center. We created a new 42,000 sf school that accommodates a highly specialized curriculum and gives students the opportunity to learn in a state-of-the-art facility, while also meeting extracurricular needs. By demolishing approximately 10,000 sf of the existing building, we created space for an asphalt play area with basketball and volleyball courts.
