Park High School Renovation and Addition
Like many schools built in the 1950s and 60s, Park High School in Livingston, Montana, was an integral part of educating the multitude of Baby Boomers. Constructed in 1967, the 95,000 square foot school served many students in what was then a state-of-the-art facility. But after 43 years serving the community, the high school needed more room and some major updating.
Residents of Park County approved a $15 million bond in May of 2010 to renovate Livingston’s only high school.
DSA Architects and Morrison-Maierle were selected by the Livingston School Board to execute the intent of that bond language by abating the asbestos, adding a multipurpose auxiliary activity space, updating science labs and vocation shops, and modernizing the track and field complex for school and community use.
DSA Architects re-designed the original space to accommodate 21st century education advancements while providing improved safety and flow between connected spaces. Morrison-Maierle provided civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical engineering services to DSA Architects. When Park High students began the school year on August 29, 2012, they entered a completely remodeled building upgraded for energy and water efficiency.
