RATIO will complete a 104,000 sq. ft. renovation plus an 18,000 sq. ft. addition, infusing 21st-century technology into the dated classrooms and providing for flexible learning environments. The new design will encourage healthy learning environments for students through lighting and thermal comfort in addition to providing a safer campus with the separation of pedestrian and vehicular zones/traffic.
Seeking to preserve, renovate and update the 105-year old structure, the Champaign Unit 4 School District engaged RATIO to improve Edison Middle School under a short timeline and while students occupy the space. The building was in great need of renovation to meet current program needs.
