Congratulations to the Council Rock School District on its Newly Renovated Holland Middle School!

SCHRADERGROUP is excited to have attended Council Rock School District’s Dedication Ceremony for the newly renovated Holland Middle School.

Dr. Robert Fraser, the Superintendent of Schools for Council Rock School District, articulated it best when he welcomed the audience to the “newly renovated, expanded and beautiful”–Holland Middle School… A school that belongs to everyone at the Council Rock Community and a school to be proud of”.

This project represents a tremendous transformation.  Many areas of the facility were stripped to the concrete structure and rebuilt as a contemporary facility with 21st Century Learning spaces. Program additions to the current middle school include: an auditorium with balcony seating, new spaces for music, an auxiliary gymnasium, fitness room, additional classrooms and a new administration area. The interior of the building was completely renovated while the exterior of the building was updated with a new, contemporary skin—with new windows that introduce daylight throughout the facility.

SG is proud to have had the opportunity to partner with the Council Rock School District, to design a LEED Gold certified learning environment.  The students of the Council Rock School District deserve this facility!

Council Rock School District takes a tour of their Newly Renovated Holland Middle School

SCHRADERGROUP’s Managing Partner, David Schrader, representation of D’Huy Engineering and Council Rock School District’s Director of Operational Services, Doug Taylor, lead a tour for the Council Rock School District (CRSD) Board members and Administrative Cabinet of the newly renovated Holland Middle School.

Holland Middle School was one of three existing middle schools in the School District that is part of a plan to consolidate the three schools into two middle schools.  Holland received renovations and additions while a new middle school was constructed adjacent to the current Newtown Middle School. Newtown Middle School was demolished for other site functions.  Both Holland and Newtown Middle Schools are designed to the same educational specifications and will serve as the two middle schools for the district.  Holland was a challenging phased project that allowed use of the building for education.

The Holland Middle School project is an incredible transformation of the existing facility into a state of the art learning environment. Classrooms, performance grade auditorium, athletic spaces and music rooms were added. The interior of the facility was transformed into a contemporary “team” or “house” structure. Students will be amazed as they enter their “New” facility this school year.

Holland Middle School is to be ready for occupancy for the start of the 2018 school year.

SCHRADERGROUP (SG) is humbled to have played a part in this amazing project initiated by the School District.
