The Edina High School expansion project adds 142,000 square feet to the 40-year-old facility and provides 21st-century updates such as flexible spaces for individual and group learning, up to 30 new teaching stations, security and classroom improvements, a renovated media center, and added offices.
Empirehouse teamed with Kraus-Anderson Construction and Wold Architects as the Architectural Glass and Metal Contractor for the Edina High School expansion project. Construction began in Spring 2016 and wrapped up just in time for the 2017-2018 school year.
The architectural glass and glazing scope brings in natural daylighting throughout the new addition through curtainwall, store front, heavy-tempered glass doors and walls which provide strength and offer an open and transparent learning environment.
Other glass and glazing features include School Guard Glass for added security.
