Blue Springs, MO

The school district in Blue Springs is growing! The design/project solution was rooted in the criteria that the school district headquarters were to remain at the existing location. The school district has operated at that address for more than 50 years and owned the property. A specific challenge was to remake a 30-year-old pre-engineered building and make it suitable for administration offices. It was important to show the public that Blue Springs School District was a good steward of the tax payer’s money by making this project a renovation and addition.


It was very apparent that the administrators and staff were quickly outgrowing their physical space and could not adequately support all of the curriculum and program needs in its current building. In addition, it became important to create a more central location for a number of departments that were located in remote district facilities.
