Kraus-Anderson wraps two construction projects for Stillwater schools


Kraus-Anderson Construction Company recently completed two major projects for Stillwater Public Schools in Minnesota. The projects included construction of the new Brookview Elementary School as well as a 9th-grade addition and new athletic complex at Stillwater High School.

Brookview Elementary, located at 11099 Brookview Road in Woodbury, Minnesota, is a new 74,000-square-foot, $18.6 million facility that can serve up to 600 students in grades K-5.

Designed by BWBR Architects, the new school features individual classroom pods that open to a common learning space. Construction included a 6,000-square-foot assembly gymnasium with an open cafeteria overlooking soft and hard play grounds, baseball field and retention ponds.

The high school, located at 5701 Stillwater Blvd. N. in Oak Park Heights, Minnesota, will add 9th-grade students to the school this fall, calling for significant renovations and reconfigurations. Construction consisted of three separate two-story additions and interior renovations, including an 80,000-square-foot Pony Activity Center, which incorporates a four-station gym with an elevated running track.

Also designed by BWBR Architects, the $47 million, project includes a gymnastics addition with locker rooms, weight room and cardio facility; new practice field; and ticketing, concessions, restrooms and main entry to Pony Stadium. Two of the wings, totaling 55,000 square feet, feature science labs, classrooms, cafeteria and kitchen, as well as an auditorium upgrade with orchestra pit.
