NEWSBRIEF: Upgrades to Mounds View High School underway

Kraus-Anderson will soon begin construction at Mounds View High School in Arden Hills. Backed by a $165 million bond issue, MVHS is the second phase of a three-phase, district-wide project for Mounds View Public Schools, which will expand facilities in an effort to accommodate a growing student body. Earlier this month, Kraus-Anderson began construction on a $24.7 million expansion at Irondale High School, part of the overall district project.

Designed by Wold Architects and Engineers, the $43.4 million worth of work on MVHS will feature a new 10,000-square-foot, two-story classroom building and a 15,000-square-foot, three-story classroom addition. The project also adds a 35,000-square-foot, four-station field house with elevated track. 

Renovations will also be made to the commons area, locker rooms, kitchen and various classrooms and will convert the existing gymnasium into a new fitness center. Additionally, crews will replace all mechanical units and reorient the staff and bus parking. Most of the components of the projects are expected to be complete by the fall of 2020.
