Clintonville school projects ahead of schedule
3D virtual walkthroughs available online
By Bert Lehman
The facilities referendum projects in the Clintonville School District are currently “on budget and ahead of schedule.”
That was the message the district relayed to the public with its latest update about the projects in a March 25 email sent by Superintendent David Dyb.
On March 22, representatives from Hoffman Planning, Design and Construction were present to answer questions and give a preview of the new and renovated learning space design using videos and 3D technology.
The virtual walkthroughs have been posted to the district’s Facebook and facilities update webpage found at www.clintonville.k12.wi.us.
The district encourages community members to review them.
The walkthroughs will show some of the designs that will be incorporated into the learning spaces, classrooms and facilities.
District staff and school board members were the first to see and interact with the designs in March.
In an interview with the Clintonville Tribune-Gazette, Dyb was asked what residents can learn if they view the virtual walkthroughs.
“The biggest thing is, you kind of get the initial feel for what the designs will look like as you walk into the renovated spaces and in the current middle school that will become the new elementary, and also the new spaces in the high school,” Dyb said. “The addition at the agri-science center, the new middle school wing and the addition at the CHS Rec Center.”
Dyb added that district officials meet weekly, if not daily, with representatives from Hoffman Planning, Design and Construction, to review classroom layouts, cabinetry and building designs.
The project is ahead of schedule because of the mild winter, which has allowed for a lot of the initial site work to be completed, Dyb said.
“Construction bids will be going out shortly, hopefully in early April,” Dyb said.
The district hopes to break ground for the first of the projects in June.
