Groundbreaking For New Sioux Center High School
August 14, 2019 12:46pm
A groundbreaking ceremony took place today for the construction of a new $29.4 million high school campus in Sioux Center. Sioux Center School Superintendent, Gary McEldowney spoke at the event, saying the project didn’t happen overnight. He thanked a large number of groups who played a role in the project, even going back more years than he’s been the superintendent.
McEldowny says after the high school is constructed, a change in the school facilities will take place. The current TK-4 grade elementary school will hold TK-2nd grade, an intermediate school will consist of 3-5th grades, and will be housed in the current middle school; the current high school building will become the middle school with grades 6-8th.
Construction Manager Nick Liston from Carl A. Nelson & Company who is overseeing the project says Sioux Center definitely has something special. He informed the crowd that 90% of all contractors are within a 60 mile radius of Sioux Center, and 72% of construction contract value will be performed by Sioux Center contractors.
Principal architect for the project, Matthew Erion from CMBA Architects agrees this is a special project, citing cooperation, vision, and community support. He says there are three design goals for the structure; showcase student activity; be student focused; and since it’s a once-in-a generation project – it needs to thrive for today and the future.
Construction should be complete for the 2021/2022 school year.
