About Langlade Hospital Replacement Critical Access Hospital
Antigo, once a busy lumber town, had constructed a 100-bed hospital in 1933. Like many rural communities, the hospital had not been renovated for years and was 110,000 square feet of sprawled-out space, unyielding to today’s healthcare needs. In 2009, Dave Schneider, CEO of Langlade Hospital, engaged Sg2, a national expert in healthcare planning to strategize for a replacement hospital that would meet the needs of the 21st century patient and physician. Schneider then asked the newly formed construction and design team to design and construct the critical access hospital of the future and to re-imagine healthcare and the connection they could have with the local community.
About Jefferson High School Additions & Remodel
When the citizens of Jefferson School District successfully passed a $35.2 million referendum for renovations to, and the expansion of, Jefferson High School in April 2010, the district was able to save taxpayers significant dollars by taking advantage of unprecedented federal stimulus financing programs, 40-year-lows in interest rates and low construction costs. At the ground-breaking ceremony for the new project, Jefferson School District Superintendent Michael Swartz told students that he and other district leaders wanted them to have a safe, up-to-date facility in which they could achieve their dreams.
