The near-century-old Rock Island High School has new life after a renovation/addition of more than 60,000 square feet. The $10.8 million project required a complex reconfiguration of the main floor including a relocation of the main office, nurses’ office, administrator, and athletic director offices to improve overall flow and accessibility. The adjustments required an addition to the existing building.
A major transformation to the school’s main entryway creates a modern and welcoming first impression while enhancing security measures. Just inside, students can now enjoy a college-like atmosphere with a new and improved cafeteria as well as lavished common areas to socialize, study and relax.
Rocky’s exterior also got some much-needed attention including safety and efficiency upgrades to the pick-up/drop-off areas, expanded staff parking, and new outdoor courtyard spaces to enjoy. The library and various classrooms throughout the school were also renovated.
As school was in session for the majority of construction, our team coordinated closely with officials to ensure as little disruption as possible to staff and students.
