Additions and renovations to Somers High School were planned and implemented as part of a bond referendum to address District-wide space needs. The original building had been expanded several times and lacked an identifiable, secure, front entrance. New additions placed a new highly visible entry corridor and main office suite and common areas—including a new four-station gymnasium, cafeteria and student commons—at the front of the building where they are accessible for athletic programs and community activities outside of school hours.
A steady influx of new housing in Somers led enrollment to grow by more than 1,000 students over a 10-year period. After extensive pre-bond planning, which included exploration of conceptual designs and budgets for a new middle school, KG+D helped the District develop a well-balanced, cost-effective plan for additions and renovations to their existing middle school. The additions included a new 630 seat auditorium, cafeteria expansion, new main entrance, a 2-story classroom additions, science labs and infrastructure upgrades.
