Christian Brothers College High School Innovation Commons
Christian Brothers College High School is a Catholic school committed to providing a college preparatory education to students from all backgrounds. As a Lasallian school, CBC’s faculty and staff are dedicated to helping every student realize the maximum potential of his God-given talents and abilities. The high school was founded by the Brothers Christian Schools in 1850.
Being a leader in education in St. Louis, it’s only fitting that CBC was looking to grow. CBC collaborated with ACI Boland and Kozeny-Wagner to upgrade the existing 8000 square-foot library space at CBC West County Campus into a state-of-the-art Innovation Commons Area to give the students access to cutting edge technologies.
The space is one of a kind and the first school in the St. Louis area to connect three skill sets needed in the workforce today; Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and STEM.
This scope of work consisted of a refresh of the interior finishes including new flooring, paint, ceiling tile and LED lighting. KWI also worked closely with CBC’s furniture and audio-visual contractors to seamlessly coordinate the interface of their two work packages in the compact timeframe of summer recess.
Key features of the project included the addition of video wall, aesthetically pleasing sound baffles in the vaulted reception area, glass walls, specialized furniture and A/V equipment.
Kozeny-Wagner acted as the General Contractor on this project and plan to see more projects dipping into the technology industry in both commercial and education sectors. In 2018, Kozeny-Wager was also the general contractor for 3rd floor renovations at T-REX, a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the economic vitality of St. Louis. Stay tuned for an article on T-REX in the near future!
