After delivering a number of successful projects for Highland C.U.S.D. #5, The Korte Company was selected by the District as Construction Manager for the Highland Middle School project.  The 111,000 square foot facility incorporated state-of-the art technologies including a fiber optic network and CATV connectivity. 

Once the bond issue for the $13.9 million school was passed in April, allowing 16 months to develop, design, engineer and build the entire project. The Korte Company provided construction management services on the project and focused on cost, schedule, and quality – key factors in the District’s decision to choose The Korte Company.

The steel frame facility, capable of a 700-student enrollment, was designed to incorporate a team concept, comprised of two teams for each of the three grades within the facility. To accommodate the team concept, the commons and multi-purpose areas can be modified via solid partition dividers to enable all teams to meet simultaneously. Key features of the building and site include:

  • 28 full classrooms (typical classroom – 870 square foot)

  • 4 science labs, 1 consumer education/technology lab

  • 12,145 square foot gymnasium with seating for 1,042

  • Baseball and softball fields; outdoor basketball court

  • All-weather 8-lane track; shot put, discus and long-jump facilities; infield for soccer or football

  • 340 parking spaces (8 ADA Compliant)
