Gilbane Building Company Breaks Ground on the Antioch School District 34 Facility Master Plan
Additions and Renovations are underway for Antioch School District 34
Antioch, IL – April 26, 2018 – Officials from Antioch School District 34 and Gilbane Building Company recently came together to celebrate the official groundbreaking of the facility master plan project that will transform district schools for future generations to come.
Gilbane will serve as construction manager for the $25.6 million program including additions and renovations at the two schools. This project is part of a master plan that includes a shift to a K-5 configuration and greater equity of space across the District. The project was made possible by a successful April 2017 referendum, which Gilbane supported through extensive community engagement and pre-planning of project costs, scheduling, phasing, logistics and safety.
“Gilbane is proud to partner with Antioch School District 34 on this project that will provide students and staff with state-of-the-art educational facilities to support the District’s continued growth. At the groundbreaking ceremony, you could feel the excitement from the community. It’s great to be a part of such an important project.” said David Norris, Gilbane Building Company Project Executive
Both schools will remain operational during construction with significant emphasis placed on the safety of students, staff and the community. Daily communication with each building’s leadership will be a top priority for the project team to ensure the educational environment is not impacted by construction.
