MartinRiley has been involved with Concordia for 15 years and has been the architect for every part of its growth out of its first classroom space. The first expansion was the addition of over 33,000 square feet to house science, media, library, art and computers in a new three story classroom building. This over $6 million dollar project relieved crowding and opened problematic existing space that was renovated into classroom and departmental offices.
Phase II was a $2.3 million project that renovated academic, service and some athletic elements of the school and added a new cafeteria, front entrance, administrative offices and support areas. It also fulfilled a long sought dream for a dedicated chapel at this parochial school. This project also enhanced the main entrance. External structural elements and stained glass are prominent features in this octagon shaped addition. A new cafeteria was also included in this phase of the addition and renovation project. Technology needs were addressed to keep pace with the speed of the world in each of the phased projects. Significant improvements in networking, big pipes and wireless connectivity were a major part of the upgrades included in this renovation and addition. Technology upgrades were made available in the media center, academic and science classrooms as well as improving the network throughout the building.
