Education

Hoffman has partnered with over 65 public school districts, along with private and charter schools. In addition to designing and building attractive and energy-efficient schools, our expertise includes facilities’ studies, site evaluations, master planning, referendum and fundraising campaigns.  We place special emphasis on functionality, flexibility, adaptability, technology, daylighting, indoor air quality, and building security to create safe and healthy 21st century learning environments.

Wittenberg-Birnamwood School District details

Hoffman was hired by the Wittenberg-Birnamwood School District to provide complete planning, design, and construction services. Following a planning effort that began in late 2015, the findings were incorporated into the process to identify one ideal option as Hoffman assisted the District in preparing for a $13.1 million November 2018 referendum, which was successful. 

Hoffman provided full design services and is now overseeing construction for additions and renovations to the District’s two PreK-8th grade schools and high school. In addition to classroom, security, and building system upgrades, project highlights include enhancements to educational and collaborative spaces as well as the high school fitness center, and the addition of a new agricultural education building and maintenance garage.

Mondovi School District details

The School District of Mondovi was seeking a design firm to provide architecture and engineering services for their 2018 referendum projects, which were expected to cost between $10 million and $30 million. After interviewing Hoffman, the District decided to hire Hoffman to provide both design and construction services. The District found value in Hoffman’s integrated process which would allow the community and District to avoid needless fees and offer the greatest opportunity to meet the desired schedule. 

Following a successful November 2018 referendum, Hoffman provided design services and is now managing the construction. Highlights of the $18 million renovation and expansion project include safety and security improvements, enhancement of the District’s 21st century learning program and STEAM rooms, mechanical upgrades, expansion of the tech ed space, and relocating and remodeling offices and art departments. Improvements will also touch the school’s bus drop-off area, playgrounds, and multi-purpose room.

Grafton School District details

Hoffman partnered with the Grafton School District in Wisconsin on a complex, multi-phase project taking place at three different schools. The project featured improvements at Kennedy and Woodview Elementary Schools and Grafton High School. The former Grafton Elementary School was deconstructed in 2018 and the remaining two elementary schools were expanded to accommodate the additional students starting with the 2018-2019 school year.

Kennedy received a two-story addition for grades 4 and 5, new music and art rooms, a new library/media center, and new gymnasium. Renovated areas included offices, special needs spaces, and two 4K classrooms. The existing library was converted to a Kindergarten and Special Needs space and the music area converted to Intellectual Disability (ID) space.

Improvements at Woodview featured an eight-classroom addition, a new gymnasium, creation of an Early Childhood and 4K space, and a kitchen remodel.
Grafton High School received upgraded athletic spaces (such as a renovated training room, new gymnasium, new family locker rooms, and remodeled sports locker rooms), enhanced tech ed spaces, and remodeled music and science rooms and labs.

All three schools were also enhanced for safety and security and to provide better accessibility for students with disabilities.

Darlington Community School District details

The Darlington Community School District selected Hoffman in August 2014 to develop a master plan for improving the Darlington High School/Middle School/Elementary School campus. Discussions included moving athletic fields, connecting the existing two school buildings, and identifying where the District could add space and programs. District and high school staff and community members listed the library/media/technology center; the buildings’ infrastructure; the field house; and the athletic fields as critical components of the master plan.

Having analyzed existing data provided by the District, conducted introductory meetings, interviewed staff and faculty, and performed community outreach via surveys, focus groups, and “town hall” meetings, Hoffman then developed preliminary space programming and prioritized District and community needs.

While additional renovations are still ongoing, three primary projects have been completed. In 2017, the library media center was remodeled and repositioned to allow flexible, collaborative student use in a 21st century environment. Other areas upgraded were tech ed, the fabrication lab, and the art center. The following year a full renovation of the school’s three science labs and support spaces was completed.

Concurrent with these design efforts, Hoffman assisted the District with the installation of their new Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System. With solar panels installed on the roof of the Darlington Elementary-Middle School, the District saw this effort as a way to gain energy savings, reduce their carbon footprint, and educate their students and community.

Once completed, the solar installment at Darlington was Wisconsin’s largest solar array for a public school district. The installation was so successful that plans are underway to enlarge and expand the system.

Berlin Area School District details

Following a highly successful referendum (which passed by a 3 to 1 margin), the Berlin Area School District in Wisconsin again partnered with Hoffman for the expansion of the district’s elementary school, the renovation at the high school, and the design and construction of the new middle school. The middle school, which is attached to the existing high school, provides the district with a 21st century learning environment and operational efficiencies through the use of shared areas with the high school—such as tech ed, kitchen, and cafeteria spaces.

At just over 94,000sf, the middle school features its own entrance and offices, classrooms, gymnasium and locker rooms, science labs, art room, library/media center and a shared wrestling/cheerleading/multi-purpose room, and weight and cardio area. Improvements to both the elementary and high schools included creating secure day-time visitor entrances as well as adding five kindergarten rooms to the elementary school and a wrestling room and enlarged fitness center to shared areas of the high school.

Northland Pines High School details

The Northland Pines School District in Wisconsin partnered with Hoffman when they decided to replace their existing high school with a new, highly sustainable 250,000 square foot facility that would be built on the same site where the existing school was located. Meeting the school district’s wish for a healthy, high-performance school, Northland Pines High School became the first LEED® Gold certified public high school in the United States. In addition, Hoffman delivered the project at a cost 25% below the regional average square foot cost of $154 for high schools built in the same year. Northland Pines High School features a media and technology center, a 750-seat auditorium, and a fieldhouse with capacity for 2,600 people—making it one of the largest in Wisconsin.

River Crest Elementary School details

At 93,450 square feet, River Crest Elementary School—in Hudson, Wisconsin—has capacity for 588 kindergarten through fifth grade students with additional space for early childhood special education. Designed and built by Hoffman, River Crest is the Hudson School District’s sixth elementary school but its first to be created using sustainable principles. Achieving one of the district’s primary goals of being a sustainable model for the community, River Crest Elementary was awarded the designation of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold from the U.S. Green Building Council. In earning the esteemed designation, River Crest became the first elementary school in Wisconsin, and just the second public elementary school in the nation, to receive Gold under the LEED for Schools Rating System. Not only highly sustainable, River Crest was completed for $166 per square foot, a total project cost which was $57 per square foot less than, or 29% below, the average cost for public elementary schools built in Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin in 2008 as reported by School Planning & Management in their “2009 Construction Report”.

Notre Dame Academy details

Notre Dame Academy in Green Bay, Wisconsin, looked to Hoffman when they decided to renovate their outdated, 960-seat auditorium, which also serves as their worship space for school liturgies. One of the main areas of the school that hadn’t undergone a significant renovation, the auditorium’s interior was old and had a muted, gray interior, while its primary entrance was nondescript and blended into the school corridor. The school hoped to create an inspiring, colorful, and vibrant environment—ideal for both theatrical performances and worship services—to be enjoyed by students, staff, parents, and the public. A wood proscenium arch that now frames the stage highlighted the remodel, in addition to other efforts such as the installation of sconces and new carpet and paint that reflect school colors. The auditorium’s primary entrance was enhanced with dark green wall-covering and a wood canopy that emphasizes the entry doors and conceals cove lighting that supplements new light fixtures.

Additional project details can be found here.
