K-12 Referendum Projects
IMEG provided engineering design and services for multiple construction projects funded by a voter-approved $34.6 million referendum to improve the Sauk Prairie School District’s K-12 facilities.
The largest project was the new, 101,000-sf Bridges Elementary School with capacity for 550 students in 4K through 2nd grades. The west side of the building includes district administrative offices with a separate entrance and reception area in proximity to conference rooms and a board meeting room; a courtyard separates the offices from the main school building. The east and west portions of the building are divided in the center by the gymnasium and a large common area that also serves as the cafeteria. Classrooms have operable exterior windows, and interior windows allow teachers to see into the hallways. A large library is located on the first floor adjacent to the common area, and each floor features small group study areas with whiteboards and other technology.
The second-largest project, an addition to Tower Rock Elementary School, added 12 new classrooms to the south side of the building to accommodate 250 additional 4K through 5th grade students. The project also included a new main entry, a separate new gymnasium addition, and a renovation of the existing gym into a multi-use area/cafeteria with barn-like appearance.
The referendum also added classrooms to Grand Avenue Elementary School, modernized science labs at Sauk Prairie Middle School, and, at all schools, increased security at entrances, improved accessibility, upgraded heating systems, and replaced roofs and windows.
