A former vocational education building when this campus served as the old high school, this forgotten building had sat vacant for many years during its time as a middle school. The 20,720 sf modernization of the existing Granite Falls Middle School vocational education building was designed to create a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) program on the campus. This modernization includes a multitude of specialized classrooms for both existing and future programs. Some of these spaces include a new Culinary Lab, a Manufacturing Lab, Robotics, Technology, Art, and Digital Media classrooms, and a Maker Lab. The spaces encourage and promote collaboration between the various programs.
The project also worked to modernize a series of classrooms within the existing building. Two traditional classroom spaces were updated to incorporate a large operable partition to allow the space to be divided into two separate classrooms or opened up into one large classroom for flexibility. Another two classrooms were modernized to become the new life skills classroom, with associated teaching space, kitchen, restroom and laundry room. Finally, an additional classroom was converted into a new science lab.
