1,000 Seat Auditorium
Francis W. Parker School is a private K-12 school in Chicago, IL. Berglund has provided preconstruction and construction services for the expansion and renovation of the school’s urban site. Most recently, we completed the Construction their Master Plan, which included a new lower school, 4th floor classroom addition, new science wing, auditorium expansion and athletic field.
Berglund successfully completed all these projects which increased the schoool's property line to the north and included renovation of the existing classrooms, shops, and drama department. The Auditorium project scope was the construction of a new balcony to the existing auditorium. In order to provide adequate height for the balcony addition, the existing auditorium roof needed to be raised approximately eight feet. Berglund scheduled the steel erection work for the summer. Detailed schedules and logistics plan were prepared and approved by the entire Project Team prior to any work commencing.
