W. A. KLINGER EXPANDS AND UPDATES 20-YEAR OLD SCHOOL TO ACCOMMODATE GROWING STUDENT BODY
W. A. Klinger was awarded the Construction Manager at Risk contract to build a new, larger Dakota Valley High School in North Sioux City, SD. The previous Dakota Valley High School was built over 20 years ago and had a 300 student capacity. When the project began, enrollment at the high school was 330, and was estimated to increase to 400 in two years’ time. The new building is designed to hold up to 500 students and to accommodate future expansion.
The $27 million, 125,000 SF, 2-story facility includes more space for family and consumer science programs, an expanded special education section, a lab for technology courses, general use classrooms, a science lab, an industrial trades facility, a library with a new multimedia center, and a gymnasium.
Nothing was torn down to complete the new project. The new high school was built north of the K-12 campus and connects to the “old” high school, which is now used for fourth and fifth grade.
