MINERAL POINT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Renovation/Addition

With the fall semester of 2021 fast approaching, Kraemer Brothers finished up the multi-year project for the Mineral Point School District on schedule, providing an exciting start to the school year! With the elementary school located on a steep, rocky hill in the middle of a residential neighborhood, careful site planning and extensive structural engineering was required during the construction process. The two-story addition features a new gymnasium and library/media center, while the existing school was remodeled to make way for updated offices, classrooms, and a cafeteria. Creating one cohesive look, Kraemer Brothers removed decades-old floor and wall tile, and replaced it with new tile and wood flooring that matches Mineral Point’s school colors, bringing extra pep to the school. To complete the transition from the existing building to the addition, a connecting bridge-walkway with a large, peaked glass roof was constructed for natural daylighting and an updated modern look.  In an effort to make the new building energy efficient, MEP upgrades and automatic light fixtures with zoned lighting were added to freshen up this vintage elementary school, presenting a brand-new school feel.
