Grinnell-Newburg High School Auditorium
ClientGrinnell-Newburg School District
In 2002, the Grinnell-Newburg School District commissioned OPN Architects, Inc. to renew the previously developed high school master plan. The District was pursuing mixed financing including a mix of local option sales tax, a Vision-Iowa grant, a bond issue, and substantial private fundraising.
The master plan was implemented in two phases. Phase I included eight classrooms, two art rooms, three departmental faculty offices, and student restrooms.
Phase II included a 600-seat dramatic auditorium complete with backstage facilities, a 1,700-seat gymnasium, four locker rooms, a weight room, a wrestling room, and maintenance facilities.
The project was completed with the construction management delivery method.
“I personally compliment all members of the OPN staff for their willingness to respond to every request and the manner with which they provided additional information. The communications were effective. The community and staff are extremely pleased with the results.”
