School District of Mondovi
Scope: Additional Renovations | Area: Additions 10,000 sq ft Renovations 30,000 sq ft | Completion Date: September 2020
The School District of Mondovi was seeking a qualified design firm to provide architecture and engineering services for their 2018 referendum projects, which were expected to cost between $10M and $30M.
After interviewing Hoffman, the District decided to hire Hoffman to provide not only design services, but construction management as well. 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.
Mondovi’s main school facility was built in 1937, with major additions in 1962, 1973, and 2000. Mondovi High School, Middle School, and Elementary School are located in the same building, which is currently just over 212,000 square feet. The project included about 30,000 square feet of remodeling and 10,000 square feet of additions.
“The District worked with Hoffman on our $18 million project since the very beginning of the referendum process and couldn’t be happier. . . their expertise in school design, renovations, and construction management was on display throughout our entire process.”

Hoffman worked with the District to prepare for a November 2018 referendum that was passed by community members. Following the referendum, Hoffman continued design services then moved into construction management. 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, building system upgrades, reinvention and expansion of the tech ed space, and relocation and new art spaces. Improvements also impacted the school’s bus drop-off area, playgrounds, and multi-purpose room.
