8/1/2017 – The Beaver Dam school board last night toured the high school campus which is being renovated as part of a $49-million-dollar referendum approved by voters in the fall. Students and staff are looking forward to seeing a newly renovated high school in the fall of 2018. However, as classes resume next month they will be greeted with construction equipment, bare concrete floors, partitions separating educational space from the work site, temporary construction lighting and open ceilings exposing wiring and ventilation infrastructure. Senior Project Manager Michael Dietrich with general contractor CG Schmidt, who led the tour, noted that the bare walls and exposed ceilings will be the norm for the next several months. School Board member Joanne Tyjeski says it is great to see each stage coming along and its easy to imagine what the future is going to be like. Tyjeski says they have been looking at the plans for months but when your in the space it an entirely different feeling that looking at the blueprints. School Board President John Kraus Jr. says the workmanship looks great and he is excited to be moving along at the pace that it is. While the weather has not exactly been cooperative so far this summer, the renovation of the Beaver Dam High School is both on time and on budget.
