New Tech High School Design Update

August 9, 2017

John Pfluger from Cuningham Group of Architects, David Leapaldt from iiW and Andy Faulkner, ICS construction manager, presented a Tech High School Design Committee update at the Board of Education work session on August 9, 2017. View the Board Presentation.

Leapaldt summarized changes made since schematic design work began, including site geology and permitting, space parameters, alternative designs and materials, and bid packages.

Faulkner presented an estimate review addressing overage costs, including significant site work, as well as alternates to bid packages designed to address keeping the project within budget, and bid package dates: two in August and one in November.

Pfluger next presented a new design concept for the exterior of the high school that incorporated stakeholder input from earlier design concepts. The new design features split-granite and wood to incorporate a quarry-woodland concept and identify the school at part of St. Cloud.
