Madison Elementary School Upgrades, St. Cloud, MN

October 16, 2016
St. Cloud Area Schools hired GLTArchitects  to address building security concerns at Madison Elementary.  The existing main office was internally located, and staff were not able to visually monitor who was coming into the school.  GLTArchitects presented various options to relocate the office to be adjacent to the main entry.  
 
The final solution consists of a small addition and remodeling of existing space.  The main office and nurses’ area are now adjacent to the parent drop off.  Visitors will now have to pass through the main office to get into the rest of the school.  The main entry is now aligned with a primary corridor, providing improved sight lines for passive supervision.  The former office space has been remodeled into a Kindergarten classroom.
 
The existing parent drop off and visitor parking has also been modified to improve safety and accessibility.  In addition, the project included new heating, cooling and ventilation systems throughout the building to improve energy efficiency and indoor air quality.  Nearly all of the windows in the building were replaced to address needed maintenance and to improve building efficiency.
 
Construction was completed over Summer to reduce its impact on the school schedule.

Sartell Middle School Addition Complete

October 27, 2014
The Sartell-St. Stephen School District was facing overcrowding in their middle school and GLTArchitects assisted them in researching options for additional classroom space.  The new addition, featured on the right side of the photo, was designed to blend in with an existing classroom addition and includes three classrooms to the south end of the school (3,850 s.f.).  The scope of work also included code upgrades to the existing school.  The project was on a very tight timeline.  Planning with the school district was done in March, construction documents were completed in April, bidding was done in May, and construction was completed over the summer to allow the new classrooms to be ready for the start of school, fall 2014.
