WAUKEGAN EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER – WAUKEGAN PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT 60

The Waukegan School District was in need of additional Early Childhood space.  A shuttered US Army Reserve Armory was acquired by the District and GreenAssociates was given the commission for its rehabilitation.

The renovated building features a new bus drop off lane along with an ADA compliant approach and entry.  Inside are seven classrooms, a conference room, three offices and two sets of restrooms.  The old drill hall will be re-purposed as a multipurpose room.
The interior surfaces of the building will be removed and replaced with painted drywall partitions, acoustical ceiling panels, and resilient floor tiles. Casework will be installed in the classrooms and ceramic tile applied to restroom walls and floor.  New water service, a complete renewal of the mechanical and plumbing systems and the installation and/or upgrade of lighting, voice, data, fire alarm, sprinkler system and electrical services will complete the internal build-out.
A portion of the building will remain for future development.
