New Trier High School campus in Winnetka has started a $100-million program to overhaul portions of the 114-year old school, according to a report by ENR Midwest.
The project includes demolition of three of the school’s oldest buildings, and building a new four-story, 268,000-ft structure on the same site. The completed building will house three science labs, a fine-arts facility, and cafeteria and lobby.
The project will be undertaken in phases, with the first officially set to begin this summer. The entire project is expected to be completed within next 2-3 years.
Chicago-based firms, Wight and Co. and Pepper Construction, are serving as project architect and construction manager, respectively.
