Project Details

The formation of a new school district gave Schemmer* the latitude to explore several building sites and solutions for the new Tea Area High School. Our team worked closely with the school board and building task force to develop a building program that best fit the needs of the high school and the growing community.

Schemmer's efforts resulted in a 108,000 SF building with a series of dynamic spaces – from the brightly lit common area to one of the finest gymnasiums in the region. Customized classrooms catering to specific curriculum needs enhance the district’s commitment to academic excellence. Tea Area High School was completed on time and well under budget.

As further testament to our quality of cost controls, the District engaged Schemmer on four subsequent projects, three studies for future facilities, and a comprehensive district growth study.
