St. Mary's Catholic School

O'Neill, Nebraska. The project features a new commons area at the entry and limited general renovation to the existing Catholic high school, representing a new school/street image and renovated office areas. The commons area is a two-story, glass-enclosed space presenting an inviting entry space for gethering and a concessions area. A three-stop elevator was added to the existing buildings along with minor renovation to accommodate elevator access at all three levels. Due to sandy soils, the work included stabilization of soils within the existing structure with urethane injections process and use of helical anchors for bearing elements under new construction. The comvined area of new construction and renovation is approximately 2,000 square feet.
