Adlai E. Stevenson High School District 125

20+ years of a successful partnership with District 125

Gilbane has been performing as construction manager for Adlai E. Stevenson High School District 125 for more than 25 years totaling $175 million worth of construction and 955,000 SF. The largest, single project was an addition for the high school that included an enclosed single-story, steel-framed hallway with a glass curtainwall and a vestibule that connects multiple buildings.

The auditorium/commons building contains a 1,250-seat performing arts center with two 50-foot diameter rotating turntables that divide the theater into three smaller spaces: a 750-seat auditorium; 250-seat theater; and 250-seat recital hall. The theater is built to special acoustical specifications, which allow multiple events to occur simultaneously in three separate theaters with complete sound isolation. Each area of the auditorium is equipped with its own sound reinforcement system.

The three-story, U-shaped classroom building houses 52 classrooms including new chemistry, biology, physics and natural science laboratories, two art rooms, resource rooms and departmental offices.

Gilbane continues to work with the District on extensive projects during each summer break. Safety and logistics are a focus to minimize any impact on surrounding neighborhoods and disruption to any summer programs held at the school.
