Kraus-Anderson Starts $29.5M Renovation for Minnesota K–12 District

Construction management firm Kraus-Anderson recently announced the launch of a $29.5-million renovation project for Jordan Public Schools in Jordan, Minn., according to a news release. The district also partnered with ISG for the project’s design, which will cover a combined 96,435 square feet across two locations. Construction on both is scheduled for completion in late summer 2025, the news release reports.

The elementary school project consists of two additions for a total of 28,000 square feet. One is an 8,500-square foot gymnasium space that can double as a storm shelter. The other will encompass new classrooms, a cafeteria, kitchen, gymnasium, secure front entry space, and loading dock. Exterior renovations and improvements will include upgraded windows, bathrooms, and mechanical electrical systems; as well as reconstructing parking lots, playground areas, and drop-off zones.

Interior renovations will upgrade the 1970s-era wing to modernize classrooms, the media center, art room, storage spaces, and more.

Meanwhile, the high-school project entails a new, secure front entryway featuring a reception area and office space, the news release reports.
