Project Overview

The new 130,000 square-foot primary school is the first primary school in the nation to seek LEED Gold Certification under the LEED for Schools rating system. The school incorporates numerous sustainable features including a geothermal heating and cooling system, multiple daylighting elements, shared use of the facility with the community, and materials that have a high recycle content, are low-emitting, and locally sourced. The school will also be used as a teaching tool for the entire District as well as the local technical colleges.

Olga Brener Intermediate School

The project also included a 10,000 square-foot addition and 84,000 square-foot remodel at Shawano’s Olga Brener Intermediate School to convert it to a Grade 3 through 5 facility. Together, the projects ease overcrowding and provide environmentally and technically updated facilities for all of the District’s elementary students.
