CG SCHMIDT CUTS THE RIBBON AT SWALLOW SCHOOL DISTRICT
Hartland, WI – After years of planning and a little more than a year since construction started, the Swallow School District, along with CG Schmidt and Plunkett-Raysich Architects (PRA), gathered on Wednesday, August 26th to hold a ceremonial ribbon-cutting at Swallow School. The $8.3 million project was approved by district voters in Fall of 2018 to replace outdated sections of the school; provide updated learning environments for modern needs; create more community-friendly gathering spaces; and address much-needed capital maintenance projects.
Included in the scope of work, CG Schmidt crews reconfigured existing spaces to better meet modern learning best practices and created a classroom wing housing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math spaces that replaced a section of the school dating back more than a century that was no longer usable. In addition, the school’s safety and security systems were upgraded, non-ADA-compliant areas were brought up to code, the school’s building systems were upgraded for efficiency, maintenance items were addressed, and asbestos abatement was performed throughout the school.
