Careful Historic Renovation and Upgrades to Boost Student Pride

Roosevelt High School Renovation

Every wall, finish, and fixture in this 1922 Georgian structure was replaced or restored to create a 256,483 SF, 21st century learning environment and a source of pride for students and neighborhoods. Hoffman gutted the building from top to bottom to make room for new structural, electrical, voice/data, and high-efficiency HVAC systems. Brick walls and terra cotta and plaster details were repaired, and in many cases replicated, to maintain the building’s historic landmark registration. Hoffman carefully salvaged other items, such as brass dials from the old boilers, for display in the new building. Roosevelt’s original auditorium was restored as a new library and computing center. A new wing, which includes arched windows matching the original building, houses the gymnasium, auditorium/theater, and science labs.
