Kraus-Anderson Takes on $21M Renovation Project for Wisconsin K–12 District

Construction management firm Kraus-Anderson recently began a $21-million renovation project for a Wisconsin school district, according to a news release. The School District of Ladysmith in Ladysmith, Wis., also partnered with Bray Architects for the project, which is scheduled for completion in summer 2024.

Renovations include a 22,000-square-foot remodel of academic classrooms in the middle school and high school; a gym expansion of 10,131 square feet; a new 2,764-square-foot media center; building systems replacements, security upgrades, a new roof, and ADA enhancements. Outdoor renovations include new parking lots and bleachers, as well as LED lights for the football field and new dugouts for the softball field. The elementary school will also receive a new roof.

“In 2021, KA completed an educational adequacy and facility study, along with facilitating a community task force to help build the district’s referendum plan,” said John Huenink, Kraus-Anderson Vice President and Director of Education Construction. “KA also supported the School District of Ladysmith in its information campaign for an April 2022 referendum, which was successful.”
