Originally constructed in 1929, Madison Middle School underwent a significant renovation, the main goal of which was to add more classroom space. The one and two-story portions of the facility were demolished and replaced, while the three-story classroom, administration wing, and main lobby, which are all designated landmarks, remained. Our structural team performed a number of life safety and seismic upgrades on the 1929 structure and 1971 gymnasium. The new additions are steel-framed and feature brick veneer and metal wall panel exteriors with cast-stone banding. The complex grading on the site required our civil team to engage in close collaboration with the entire team. Further coordination was required for the installation and routing of a geothermal well system beneath the new track and field.
