Minnesota and Wisconsin; (April 10, 2017) – The School District of Superior, WI is set to break ground Wednesday, April 12, 2017 to mark the start of demolition of the existing Cooper Elementary and the construction of the new Cooper Elementary School designed by LHB. The ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. at 1807 Missouri Avenue, Superior, WI 54880.
The new Early Childhood to grade five facility is designed to accommodate 600 students, plus faculty and staff. The project will replace the existing facility on the same site. Main project goals include improved site safety and circulation, building security, clear entry for parents and visitors, increased occupant capacity, and an improved educational environment. The new facility includes Early Childhood functions within the building and a separate age-appropriate playground, as well as designs specifically focus on the district’s autism program, in addition to the standard K-5 grades and support spaces.
LHB is providing architecture and engineering services for the project, with construction services from Kraus-Anderson Construction and local contractors.
