Holland Construction Services has completed work on a $4 million addition to Carlyle High School in Carlyle, Illinois, about an hour’s drive from St. Louis.
The project included a 10,000-square-foot building addition that consists of a new multi-purpose cafeteria and kitchen area, a secured entry vestibule as well as offices, bathrooms and a lobby.
Carlyle School District superintendent Annie Gray said the school district plans to use the new multi-purpose room to its full capacity this fall. The new space has multiple benefits including allowing high school students to eat lunch inside the school building as opposed to leaving campus. The project also improved the school’s security by creating a new entrance to the school offices with a secured entry vestibule.
Holland project manager Brian Dayton said his team worked with both the design team and school administrators closely to ensure that the new space would be multi-functional.
