Marion Independent School District Additions & Renovations

Owner: Marion Independent School District
Completion: Summer 2013
Construction Cost: $9,064,000

Marion’s superintendent came to us to work on a master plan with their school board.  That master plan quickly evolved into a common understanding that Marion needed to go out for a bond to improve their facilities and relieve overcrowding at their secondary school.

In the final project, we addressed various needs of district, across their entire combined campuses, covering 10 different buildings and scopes of work varying in size for a 25,000 SF addition / renovation to a 1,500 SF classroom renovation. (1 & 2) Renovation of an 8,700 SF existing unused elementary campus building, stripped down to the concrete structure, into a classroom wing with restrooms and a 17,000 SF addition including a new kitchen, cafeteria, stage and gymnasium. (3) A 21,200 SF, two-story freestanding addition to their high school with a band hall and 6 classrooms, 4 science laboratories, restrooms and teacher’s workroom. (4) Renovation of a 1,500 SF art classroom and addition of a kiln in an adjacent room. (5) Renovation of 2,700 SF High School Band Hall into a new black-box Theater Arts facility, complete with dressing rooms, make-up room, restrooms and office. (6) Renovation of 2,000 SF existing vocational classrooms to expand vocational shop. (7) A 2,300 SF freestanding classroom building connected to the existing vocational building with covered walkways. (8) A 3,000 SF Agriscience barn with covered animal pens, wash area and storage. (9) Addition of air conditioning to existing Jr. High School gymnasium. (10) ADA renovations to High School stage.
