Springfield (Ill.) district's Lanphier High School will get a $93.2 million upgrade

April 15, 2022
The renovated building will have a commons area with a skylight that will connect the oldest section of the school at the front entrance, other improvements call for a 2,000-seat new field house, auditorium, and an esports room.

Lanphier High School in Springfield, Ill., is undergoing a $93.2 million overhaul. 

The renovated building will have a commons area with a skylight that will connect the oldest section of the school at the front entrance, reports The State Journal-Register

The district is also constructing a classroom addition behind that area. 

Jennifer Gill, superintendent of the Springfield district, says the goal of the renovation is to preserve "the historical nature of Lanphier but yet make it to where it is completely redone and renewed inside."

Other improvements include a new auditorium, a 2,000-seat fieldhouse, an esports room, and an area for a construction trades program.

Memorial Stadium, home to Lanphier and Springfield High School athletics, will get a new field and a resurfaced track along with new locker rooms, a concession stand and restrooms.

Sangamon County voters approved a 1% sales tax hike to pay for school construction for districts in the county.

Most of the construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023. 

BLDD Architects, Inc. is the architect, and O'Shea Builders is the builder.
