Totaling just over $73 million, the Shakopee High School Addition and Renovation project is the largest project award in Shaw-Lundquist’s history!
Shakopee residents overwhelmingly support this renovation project to create a “megaschool”, rather than build another high school to support the growing community. The addition will double the size of the exiting school accommodating 1,600 more students to bring the maximum enrollment to 3,200.
The Shakopee High School Addition and Renovation project is bound to improve academic and athletic experiences of students and the community with upgraded and technology enhanced classrooms, innovative collaboration spaces, upgraded kitchen facilities, multi-use performance auditoriums, and three new gymnasiums. Outdoor facilities will include a new track and turf field, and expanded plaza area and parking lot, among other updates.
“We are excited to get started on the Shakopee High school project. Shaw-Lundquist takes pride in improving how people work and learn within our community. This project allows us to put our mission of Building Better Lives into action as we construct state of the art academic and athletic facilities for students, faculty and staff” said Dave LaPree, the Shaw-Lundquist Project Manager assigned to the project.
Shaw-Lundquist is a family owned, minority owned general contractor headquartered in Minnesota. An extensive resume of education and school improvement projects paired with expertise in new construction and renovations make Shaw-Lundquist the perfect fit for this project.
Ground breaking will take place August 2016, prior to students returning to campus for the 2016-2017 academic year. The project is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2018.
