Beaverhead County High School Renovation
45 Architecture was selected for updating all three buildings for Beaverhead County High School located in Dillon, MT. The project needed to meet codes, safety concerns, space constraints and improve the aging structures. These improvements enhanced the needs of the students, teachers, and community.
Phase 1: The design for the Main Historic Building (1938) added an accessible entrance to the front of the building, upgraded bathrooms, added a main level student commons and teacher work rooms, abandoned the non-conforming partial basement, and reorganized the administrative spaces/classrooms.
Phase 2: The existing Vo-Ag and wood shop was replaced with new facilities. In addition to a connected science facility for all science classes that share new technology, mechanical ventilation systems and a greenhouse to enhance the science and Vo-Ag programs were added.
Phase 3: B.W. Lodge gymnasium added a new structure to its east side including a new music facility, a multi-purpose cardio/wrestling room and a weight room. Within the existing footprint of the building, guest locker rooms, updated rest rooms facilities and other associated storage reorganization was done.
