ICI completed two major school expansion projects within a two year span for North Palos School District 117. After finishing a 16,285 square foot expansion to Sorrick Elementary School, the District approached ICI to begin preconstruction budgeting for a similar expansion onto Oak Ridge Elementary School.
The 16,000 square foot expansion began in the spring of 2013 and was turned over to the District in coordination with their winter break in December 2013. The two-story expansion created space for seven classrooms (divisible into thirteen total), a state-of-the-art media center, a workroom, storage rooms and a new mechanical room.
Additionally, ICI relocated the school’s administrative area and created a more secure entry point at the school’s main entrance. The front doors are equipped with security cameras so administrative staff are aware of every person entering and exiting the building.
ICI also expanded the school’s All-Purpose Room to create space for a more funtional kitchen, better storage and to create a space to house the building’s mechanical systems. The All Purpose Room also received cosmetic upgrades.
