Project Overview:

Tuscola CUSD selected Gray for a complete interior renovation of the science rooms and lecture hall at East Prairie Middle School.

Phase One renovations include upgrades to the central science wing to improve space efficiency and classroom access. Gray reconfigured the science lab to provide access to the new STEAM room, which offers students dual-function pivot doors that can open into the library or close simultaneously to create a seamless markerboard for note-taking or creative ideas during class, plus a teacher’s island for demonstrations. The upgraded lecture hall features a new layout and chairs with wheelchair accessible spaces. Custom-wrapped panels in lecture hall walls were added to improve acoustics.

Phase Two includes renovations to the remainder of the middle school classrooms and corridors, including the possible relocation of lockers in the existing locker pit to create a student lounge. Gray added ADA-accessible doors and new technology in both phases to all classrooms. A new HVAC was installed to create a safe and comfortable learning environment for students and school staff. And upgraded acoustic ceiling tiles with LED lighting and a warm neutral palette with pops of bright yellow finishes in the Tuscola mascot colors create a fun learning environment and promote school spirit.
