Marceline, MO –
If you haven’t driven by Marceline High School in the past month, you may be
surprised to see a hub of construction activity on the west side of the current
facility along Highway 5.
Marceline R-V School District is constructing an addition to the High School of
approximately 9,000 square feet. This new facility will include a multi-purpose
gymnasium space that will also be used for a cafeteria. A serving kitchen is
included in the design, as are new concessions, restrooms, and storage space.
The project also includes modernization of the existing Gym Lobby, restrooms,
and coach's office.
The Contractor, Schwada Buildiers, Inc., began work in March of this year after
ten months of planning and engineering by the design team, Facility Solutions
Group and BRS Architects, both of St. Louis. Civil Engineering was
provided by AllState Consultants of Marceline.
"We are very excited to see progress made on the dirtwork for the new
cafeteria/gymnasium,” said Gabe Edgar, School Superintendent. “We have
worked with Schwada Builders in the past and we are very confident the finished
product will be something to be proud of."
The project is part of the 2014 Bond Issue, and is planned for completion by the
end of the calendar year.
