Grunley renovated the existing 264,000 square foot, two-story Carl Sandburg Middle School. The school houses 1,200 students and faculty. In addition, Grunley constructed three additions totaling 6,000 square feet. The renovation included enlarging classrooms and replacing windows, doors, finishes, and major building systems. An automatic sprinkler system was installed, and the gymnasium and cafeteria were modernized. The first addition now serves as the school’s new administrative offices and main entry. The second addition features a gymnasium lobby. The third addition includes a corridor linking the existing building circulation. Site work consisted of reconfiguring a kiss and ride lot, utility and pavement work and landscaping.
