ST. LOUIS, MO—Ladue School District hosted multiple ribbon-cutting ceremonies this month to celebrate the completion of Ladue Middle School, Spoede Elementary School, and Old Bonhomme Elementary as part of Prop L, the 2021 Bond Issue building program. S. M. Wilson served as the Construction Manager at Risk for each of the projects, with Cordogan Clark & Associates and Perkins & Will as the design partners.

These projects allowed S. M. Wilson to strengthen our partnership with the Ladue School District while at the same time bringing these amazing, future-ready learning facilities to the students, staff, and the district,” said Jason Gasawski, director of operations at S. M. Wilson, who oversaw each of the projects as the project director. 

Our long-standing relationship with the school district has spanned nearly 20 years and has included many incredible projects, such as the new Early Childhood Center, the additions and renovations to the high school, and most recently, the projects made possible through the 2021 Bond Issue. Each project has been a source of great pride for our company.”

Prop L allowed the Ladue School District to extensively renovate and construct three additions at Ladue Middle School, a new two-story building around the existing Spoede Elementary gymnasium, and two additions and completely renovate Old Bonhomme Elementary. Each project included the construction of an ICC-rated storm shelter and additional classroom areas with collaborative learning spaces, lab areas, and small group rooms. Each school also now features a new multi-purpose media center.

S. M. Wilson worked in partnership with more than 40 school districts in Missouri and Illinois. The districts included, but are not limited to Francis Howell School District, Pattonville School District, Northwest R-I School District, Columbia Public Schools, Jefferson City School District, Edwardsville Community Unit School District #7, and Alton Community Unit School District #3.
