MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (August 2012) – Kraus-Anderson Construction Company (KA), one of the Midwest’s oldest and largest commercial general contractors and construction managers, has been selected to build a new 23,800-square-foot auditorium for Pine City Schools District, in Pine City, Minn., 70 miles north of Minneapolis. Voters approved a school bond referendum that would provide up to $5,715,000 for construction.
Construction on the 730-seat fine arts auditorium, which will be located at the high school (1400 Main St. S.), will begin in the spring of 2013 and is expected to be completed by November 2013. The project is designed by Minneapolis-based ARY Architects Inc.
The auditorium will include a large space for a single assembly that can be divided into two learning areas featuring a quality sound system. The multi-purpose space will accommodate large groups as well as band and choir concerts.
KA has worked with the school district on numerous projects since 2004. Previous construction has included a 24,590-square-foot media center, classroom, gym additions and indoor air quality improvements at the elementary school; a 2,500-square-foot Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) classroom and addition; and tennis court reconstruction, mechanical room addition, ventilation improvements and installation of two new stairways at the high school.
