Lake Forest Country Day School

Lake Forest, Illinois

Traditions bring us together, giving us a sense of collective identity through shared experience. And in the context of a school, traditions can create a tight-knit community, improving the classroom learning experience. That’s why Lake Forest Country Day looked for a contractor that could respect and preserve the school’s rich history while building for the future with facility upgrades and expansions. New construction included the lower and upper schools, science classrooms, library and media center, art rooms and the commons area, while renovations were made to drama classrooms, performing arts center, administrative offices, educational support, parking areas and traffic patterns. With great attention to detail, the project team ensured the renovations and new construction stayed true to the school’s existing style, creating a cohesive final product.
