Dowagiac Union High School Renovations & Expansion

Dowagiac, MI
137,000 SF

Seven Generations has provided architectural and engineering services on several projects for Dowagiac Union Schools in recent years. A project for the “Transformation of Dowagiac High School” followed the tenets set forth by the community in the November 2015 Bond Issues. This project design included a new Safe and Secure entry to the high school with the reorganization of the Administration Office.

The overall square footage of the existing high school is 116,216; which is completely renovated with new finishes, fixtures, and mechanical systems. A new competition gym addition will bring the total building square footage to 137,823.

“All time, everywhere learning” was the main concept for technology in the transformation of the high school. The existing cafeteria was renamed “Great Room” in the visioning phase. New fixed and movable tables energized the space for dining, providing multiple seating configurations and areas for learning.

The media center was renamed the “Learning and Research Center," where a group of 24 students can now use a computer lab for instruction and research similar to a Steelcase Learn Lab on the south end of the LRC.
