It’s out with the old, and in with the new! The Rock Island – Milan School District #41 came to us with three main goals for their brand-new administrative center: unify staff, accelerate food production, and create more storage space.
After years of operating in an old, cramped, and energy inefficient space, Bush Construction delivered a 35,000 new-build administrative center comprised of a district office (18,000 SF), a warehouse (11,000 SF), and a food production area (6,000 SF).
The one-level layout improves accessibility and ease of use for the multi-purpose building. To increase security and privacy for staff, a brand-new secure entryway was installed.
After previously working out of multiple small kitchens in different locations, a centrally located production kitchen was essential to the district. The new top-of-the-line, high-performance kitchen will allow the nutrition services team to prepare more than 4,000 meals per day with increased quality and efficiency.
The new space will serve as a gathering space for students, staff and community alike.
