Planning, Design, and Construction Updates

Winter 2023

Spring 2023

Construction is underway at both school buildings! The foundation for the Elementary addition is in progress. Later this summer, the roof will be replaced at the Elementary. At the MS/HS, work is underway on the north side of the building for classrooms, restrooms, and infrastructure.

Progress on our referendum projects continues: The excavation for the addition at Wild Rose Elementary School is complete along with footings and foundation walls. The Maintenance Building garage door was removed and replaced with a newer and larger door. Work continues on the north side of Wild Rose Middle/High School: Stud walls were installed along with masonry infills at the new door frames to create classroom spaces. Dry-walled walls are finished and painted. One major referendum project is installing building-wide air conditioning at Wild Rose Middle/High School. In the North rooms, HVAC piping and ductwork for the chillers is in the process of being installed. The concrete floor was removed from the restrooms for new plumbing. New plumbing lines were then installed and new restroom floors are being put back in.

December 2022

Over the past few weeks, Bray Architects, Miron Construction, and the School District of Wild Rose have completed the design and sent the drawings out to bid! The design details are complete, and the team has strategized about the phasing of work, moving staff within the building, and forecasting the months to come.

Check out the latest project images on the attached link above.


  • Pre-Bid walk on December 7 to allow prospective contractors an opportunity to walk both buildings

  • Bids are due before the holidays.

  • Construction starts as early as March of 2023.

High-Level Project Timeline

  • November 17, 2022: Drawings sent out for Bid

  • December 7, 2022: Pre-bid Walk for Contractors interested in the project

  • Mid-December 2022: Contractor bids due for the project

  • March 2023: Construction Starts at the Middle School / High School

November 2022

Over the past month, Wild Rose Administration, Bray Architects, and Miron Construction have attended multiple engineering meetings, made final design decisions, and discussed how the phasing of the projects would occur over the next two years. With the overall designs of both buildings complete, the architectural and engineering team will work over the coming weeks to complete the final details for the projects that will go into the construction documents. Meanwhile, Miron Construction is preparing documents to assist in putting the projects out to bid.


  • Coordination of final details in preparation for sending the drawings out to bid.

  • Finalize specifications and bid documents.

October 2022

On both buildings in the school district, large-scale design conversations are coming to a close as we focus on the operational and functional needs to make the designs work.

At the Middle/High School, the new front entrance canopy has been approved (see image below), the interior finishes have been selected, and conversations are ongoing on the selection of items such as door and glass types.

At the Elementary School, coordination on how the addition ties into the site and the existing infrastructure is ongoing as we understand how the addition is best to function. Like the Middle/High School, interior finishes have been selected at the Elementary School, and selection discussions, such as door types, roof types, etc., are ongoing.


  • Detailed conversations about power, lighting, plumbing fixtures, and other infrastructure items.

  • Engineering meetings with the Administration

  • Finalizing shop equipment layouts in the Tech Ed Department

September 2022

Over the past month, both designs of the improvements at the Middle / High School and the Elementary School have taken significant strides forward.

At the Elementary School, detailed discussions about power, data, and audio/video have taken place as the room layouts are being finalized.

At the Middle/High School, edits and adjustments continue in some of the specific curriculum spaces, such as Art, Tech Ed, and Family and Consumer Science. Meanwhile, the rest of the building layouts are locked in.

Check out preliminary renderings of the Elementary School addition and interior spaces within the Middle / High School.

July 2022

Over the past few months, SD of Wild Rose, along with Bray Architects and Miron Construction, has been active in the design process of the Middle/High School and the Elementary School.

In May, the design highlight was being able to go on tours of other Middle & High School facilities at Hartford Union HS, Mayville HS, and Kewaskum MS/HS. These three schools were chosen specifically as they all had projects in the past 5-7 years that emphasized the areas that Wild Rose is also emphasizing. SD of Wild Rose Administrator Craig Hayes, both building principals and staff critical to specific program areas, all attended the tours.

In June, many of the existing site studies were completed. That means getting a topographical survey, geotechnical borings, and additional studies into existing infrastructure have all taken place alongside design meetings.

In July, the focus was on the design details of the new secure entry sequences, remodeled art, family and consumer science, and technology education spaces. The Elementary School addition layout has been finalized, and Bray Architects is working through the engineering on that building.

What's Next?:

  • Finalize interior finish selections

  • Detailed conversations about power, lighting, plumbing fixtures, and other infrastructure items

  • Engineering meetings with district administration

  • Looking at exterior design features for the Elementary School Addition and Canopies at the Middle / High School

  • Continued Development in the Middle / High School in specific areas such as Art, Tech Ed, and Family and Consumer Science

  • Interior design updates
