La Salle High School Expansion and Modernization
Design-Build | Pankow Builders
Gonzalez Goodale Architects has been engaged with Pankow Builders to Master Plan and implement the expansion and modernization of the La Salle High School campus that was established in 1956. With the implementation of the master plan - including final design and construction of a performing arts complex and new athletic facilities including gymnasium, swimming pool and athletic fields - occurring over a ten year period, Pankow Builders was instrumental in providing realistically projected cost estimates and developing the most effective phasing to help La Salle plan for growth and funding accordingly.
In addition to cost estimation and projection, the Pankow and Gonzalez Goodale team were integral to the La Salle community outreach component of the master plan approval process. With residential neighbors adjacent, the build-out of the school necessitated our team developing a logically and sensitively phased program which worked to foster community trust and support throughout the process.
