BURLINGTON, WI — Scherrer Construction Co., Inc., a full-service general contractor and construction management firm, in partnership with Plunkett Raysich Architects LLP, recently completed a $35-million construction project to build the new Karcher Middle School within the Burlington Area School District.

The new 145,000-square-foot school will serve more than 700 students and has improved security and safety features. The building has several core curriculum classrooms for all grade levels, six through eight, as well as spaces for special education and elective programming including STEM education, art, band, orchestra, and choir. Construction also included a new gymnasium, fitness room, and locker rooms, as well as enhanced common areas including a library with flexible learning spaces, cafeteria, and staff offices.

“The Burlington Area School District continues to grow, and we’re excited to be able to help them do that with the best equipment and learning technology available,” said Dan Bay, Senior Project Manager of Scherrer Construction. “As learning continues to evolve, Scherrer is proud to be at the forefront of creating enhanced learning spaces for children to excel in school.”

The original Karcher Middle School was built in 1924 and was nearly 100 years old. The building was past its useful life and no longer served the needs of today’s 21st century learning environment. The updated Karcher Middle School is part of Burlington Area School District’s strategic plan for district-wide updates to its facilities.
