Wondra Construction Earns Award For Work On Horicon Athletic Complex

(Beaver Dam) Work to upgrade the Horicon School District’s track and field earned those involved an award from the Associated Builders and Contractors of Wisconsin. The Horicon High School Athletic Complex, Iron Ridge-based Wondra Construction, as well as designer – Point of Beginning – received the Silver Award for sitework, landscape, and hardscape of the $3-million-dollar project.

Officials with Associated Builders and Contractors of Wisconsin say Wondra self-performed 100-percent of their scope for the project, including 74-thousand cubic yards of mass earthwork, 5-thousand cubic yards of marsh excavation for the DNR-approved wetland fill, and more than 86-hundred linear feet of storm sewer pipe installation.

Horicon School Board President Meredith Strieff says Wondra transformed their deteriorated track into a beautiful, state-of-the-art Sword Field working through challenging soil and landscape conditions at every turn. She adds that their ingenuity and determination allowed them to complete the project on time and their roughly $150-thousand-dollar in-kind donation helped provide the Horicon community with an athletic facility that will serve future Marshmen for years to come.

Sword Field, named for prominent donor Sword Financial and the Schwertfeger family, opened last August.
