NORTHWOOD PUBLIC SCHOOL
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Due to increasing enrollment, Northwood Public School needed more classroom space to accommodate the growing number of students and staff. The school board also saw a need for an auditorium to be used by both the school and the community for a variety of events. As the architect of the existing school that was built in 2009 following a devastating tornado, ICON was called upon again to provide architectural services to Northwood Public School. In fall of 2018, with ICON’s leadership and guidance, the community approved the bond referendum by 75% to move forward with the project. The design features additional classroom space in the elementary wing to include space for Title I, Special Education, Music Instruction, and general classrooms. The auditorium space includes seating for 380 occupants, theatre production support space, audio and lighting control rooms, a welcoming entry lobby, and dedicated men’s and women’s restrooms. The project also includes renovation work in the existing music room to provide additional storage space.
