McKenzie County School District #1 Watford City Elementary School Addition and Renovation

Watford City, ND

Project Overview

When the oil boom in western North Dakota dramatically increased Watford City's student enrollment, the McKenzie County School District chose ICON to lead the design of an addition and renovation of its K-5 Elementary School. Renovations included asbestos abatement of the existing facility, ADA and HVAC code compliance upgrades, and updating finishes to provide a consistent look throughout the entire building. A new gymnasium, a library, a computer lab, music rooms, and four classrooms were also added as part of the new construction. The design focused on bringing natural light into the building. This is illustrated in the new gymnasium, school entrances, and throughout the library where large expanses of glass overlook the adjacent football field.
