Kraus-Anderson Construction Company will build a new music and performing arts auditorium for the St. Croix Falls School District in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin. The new facility’s primary goal is to provide space for educational purposes. It will co-exist with the proposed Civic Auditorium in the city of St. Croix Falls.
On April 7, voters approved a $14 million district bond referendum project, which also features an improved $1.8 million fitness area that will provide space for class participation to occur in one location as well as increased resources and availability to athletic and fitness programs for extracurricular training.
The project also includes a $525,000 bus garage addition to house and protect buses, district vehicles and maintenance equipment. The project is expected to begin in the spring of 2021 and will be completed in the fall of 2022.
Designed by DSGW, the new auditorium will accommodate continued growth of the music program and performing arts, including theatrical productions, musicals and concerts, and will also serve as a large group learning space, which frees up existing space to allow for additional educational programming. The 580-seat auditorium is modeled after the auditorium built in 2017 for Unity School District in Balsam Lake, Wisconsin.
