Lake Mills, Wis. – Lake Mills Middle School was recently awarded a 2011 BUILD Wisconsin “Design-Build – Renovation” Award, presented by the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Wisconsin. Miron Construction Co., Inc., the design-builder on the Lake Mills Middle School project, received two additional awards. Award winners were selected based on sustainable practices, unusual design and craftsmanship, innovation in construction techniques or materials, meeting difficult challenges and client satisfaction.
The project team working on the Lake Mills Middle School Addition & Remodeling project sought to increase teacher interaction, create unique learning spaces, improve accessibility, increase connection to the neighborhood, be cost-conscious, replace outdated systems and integrate sustainability into the new and renovated spaces. The school district desired a revitalized home, one that was bright, naturally day lit, high performing and colorful, to serve the mission of their district. The 59,865-square-foot addition was built and the existing 36,632 square feet were renovated into a 98,527-square-foot, multi-level, green school with final costs coming in $700,000 below the approved budget.
