Dutchess Day School
Impressive renovation provides room for growth at respected educational institution
Originally built in the 1970s and revamped in the late 1990s, the science wing at Dutchess Day School contained two classrooms where students learned science and conducted laboratory experiments. The school found that the facility needed to be brought up to modern standards so the science faculty can enhance the curriculum. This was a project that several construction companies had turned down due to time constraints – construction needed to take place when school was out of session. Mid Hudson Construction Management took the job and delivered the project in 60 days!
MHCM undertook a 20,000 SF renovation that included construction of three new classrooms, two of which had large lecture and laboratory space for upper school classes. The new classrooms had a greater capacity to accommodate growing class sizes and the new staircase improved traffic flow within the school.
To provide the school with much-needed performing arts space, MHCM opted to re-purpose gymnasium space into a beautiful performing arts venue. The Tower house also had extensive interior renovations and a rebuild that opened up a cramped, low-ceilinged area into the attic, creating soaring ceilings and skylit classrooms. Finally, the headmasters house was also restored and renovated.
