Project description: This project involves approximately 95,000 square feet of renovations, additions to and remodeling of the existing Seward/Tops School. Work will be performed on three historic buildings which are city landmarks, including an 1893 school house. Exterior improvements will preserve the inherent qualities and character of the historic wood-frame structures. Inside, the buildings will be altered to conform to technical codes and life-safety regulations, including ADA requirements and new mechanical, electrical and telecommunications systems.

A modern media center and a multi-purpose gymnasium will be added along with 26 parking stalls. Also, a new hillclimb will be integrated to the west of the school. It will include gathering spaces for quiet play, outdoor classes and socializing.
