St. Michael-Albertville Public School’s enrollment had swollen to a point where their current High School Facilities could no longer meet the school district’s educational demands. They sought a first-class facility that could meet their current needs as well as the needs of the growing local population for years to come.
St. Michael-Albertville Public Schools chose to construct a brand new, 410,000 square feet, state-of-the-art high school and converted their current high school into a second middle school. These changes made it feasible to meet the educational demands of the growing district now and in the future. Haldeman-Homme was contacted for their expertise in educational and athletic facility design and for their large variety of products and services offered. Haldeman-Homme (and sister company Anderson-Ladd) worked closely with the project team which included St. Michael-Albertville Public Schools’ Facilities Manager, Terry Zerwas; general contractor, Donlar; and ARY architects to understand the goals of this project and exceed the expectations of everyone involved.
Haldeman-Homme’s ability to work cohesively with the project team to make their vision a reality resulted in the opening of the brand new St. Michael-Albertville High School for the start of the 2009-2010 school year.
The project included student and athletic lockers by DeBourgh, auditorium seats by Irwin, Porter wrestling mat storage and a variety of storage solutions. Anderson-Ladd also contributed to the project by designing and installing the field house flooring, which was a Robbins Pulastic, Spike-proof, synthetic flooring surface with inlayed basketball, volleyball and badminton courts.
