Clintonville breaks ground
Construction begins on school referendum project
The Clintonville Public School District has broken ground on its phase 1 referendum projects, which will take place on the Clintonville High School campus.
District officials, staff, students, and representatives of Hoffman Planning, Design and Construction Inc. turned dirt on the $37 million project which was approved by voters in November 2020; the first referendum approved by school district voters in 20 years.
Hoffman provided planning and design services to the district for the past two years and will also serve as the project’s construction manager.
“We are extremely excited to get our referendum projects underway,” said David Dyb, Clintonville superintendent. “Hoffman’s expertise in school design and their dedication to engaging and listening to all District stakeholders has resulted in facility solutions that will greatly benefit our students, staff, and community.”
The referendum projects include adding a new middle school and agricultural-science building to the high school, remodeling existing tech ed and welding spaces, a new independent living classroom expansion, and the addition of a fitness and weight room to the existing Rec Center.
Those will be followed by renovation of the existing middle school into the district’s new 4K-5 elementary school. The projects at the high school are slated to be completed by fall 2022 with the renovation of the middle school scheduled for completion in fall 2023.
“These are critical projects for the Clintonville Public School District,” said Chad Ulman, Hoffman’s vice president of architecture and a past graduate of Clintonville High School. “Upon completion, the district will be well positioned to meet the evolving needs of their students into the next generation. Hoffman is honored to be assisting the district in their journey.”
