Hoffman began working with the Grafton School District in 2014 to evaluate their facilities and develop a long-term strategy.
Our involvement included providing facility assessments, educational adequacy assessments, and pre-referendum and referendum assistance. Following a successful April 2017 referendum, Hoffman provided full design and comprehensive construction management services.
The project featured improvements at Kennedy and Woodview Elementary Schools and Grafton High School. The existing 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 welcomed a two-story addition for grades 4 and 5, new music and art rooms, a new library/media center, and new gymnasium. Renovations touched office space, special needs areas, 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.
“We are thrilled with how the renovations and additions turned out at each of our schools! The transformations of our existing spaces are incredible, and the new additions greatly elevate the facilities and amenities we are able to offer our community.”
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 (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 to provide better accessibility for students with disabilities.
