Expected Benefits Will allow for higher enrollment Will support the total academic program Will enhance student life (across entire BCD community) Will build on faculty satisfaction, recruitment and retention Will improve science, math and technology curriculum
Plan Development Schematic plans, preliminary budget. Input solicited by board, faculty, staff, parent body (“Pop Talks”). Per input, plans modified, scope expanded. HOS, MS Director recommend 6 th - 8 th grade expanded MS.
Construction Schedule June 1, 2009: Begin construction. Aug 31, 2009: Dried-in (walls up, windows in, ext. doors in, roof on.) December 1, 2009: C.O., punch list, move-in. January 4, 2009: Occupancy.

The Team Project architect - Railton McEvoy. Phil McEvoy designed existing BCD campus and remodels. General contractor - Wyatt Construction. Wyatt Construction built BCD’s Nautilus campus in General counsel - Faegre & Benson. Project mgr/Owner’s rep - Doug DaPuzzo.
Design Philosophy Building designed to be versatile and adaptable for future uses. Technology infrastructure designed to scalable and flexible for future technological needs. Science “suite” is envisioned to be a cornerstone of the new facility. ADA compliant. Will endeavor to be “green” where it is cost efficient and budget responsible.
MS Enhancements: Form/Function (part 1) FORMFUNCTION 8,309 additional SF (133% incr.) Existing MS - 6,251 sf (1 story) Proposed MS - 14,450 sf (2 story) Additional potential enrollment of 36 students: Current Max MS 108 = 18 per class x 2 classes x 3 grades (6-8) Proposed Max MS: 144 = 16 per class x 3 classes x 3 grades (6-8) Broader, more diverse social opportunities. More athletic opportunities Enables expanded/enhanced academic offerings. Increased potential revenue: more/better-paid staff/faculty 2 dedicated Science Classrooms. 2 concurrent science classes. Dedicated MS science lab. Dedicated ES science lab. Enhanced science program. Flexible, scalable technology infrastructure enhancements. Adaptable to future technology needs.
MS Enhancements: Form/Function (part 2) FORMFUNCTION A dedicated activity / lunch room. Eliminates conflict between shared lunch use and classroom use. Enhances student life. An enhanced faculty lounge w/ shower. Attract/maint. quality faculty/staff. 2 additional staff offices. Attract/maint. quality faculty/staff.
