It takes the right general contractor—and especially caring team members—to deliver a large-scale, mass-timber renovation and expansion in the heart of an active PK-12 campus. With early preconstruction efforts to establish a foundation of success through specialized safety measures, sequenced construction, and rules of conduct for all craft on site to uphold the integrity and values of OES, the project was completed with exceptionally minimal impacts to students, staff, parents and visitors. The new and renovated gymnasia, featuring mass timber construction with exposed 102-foot glulam beam spans, now host more than 75 sports teams throughout the year with a warm and natural-light filled environment. Also, the replaced central plant provides more-efficient heating and cooling for athletics, the chapel and neighboring Ferris Hall.

"I've been back on campus since we completed the project, and I still marvel how well it turned out...and I especially noticed that every single person in the Athletic Center had a huge smile on their face."
