Glenview (Ill.) District 34 has upgraded an aging middle school with multiple additions, renovations and replacements.
The Daily Herald reports that the improvements at Springman Middle School include a new gymnasium and physical education offices, locker rooms, a two-story addition, four new science labs, and stormwater detention.
Funding for the Springman project, as well as upgrades at three other Disttrict 34 schools, comes from a $119 million bond issue that voters approved in March 2020.
"The original building was truly functionally obsolete,” says FGM Architects Vice President Ron Richardson. “They had a lot of deferred maintenance that had been going on for years simply because they had limited funds, and because of the referendum they were able to correct many of those, and right-size and correct a lot of those problems that are in the building.”
The architect is FGM Architects, and the contractor is Nicholas and Associates.
