Sun Prairie High School

Huffman Facility Development was hired to serve as Owner’s Representative for creation of the new Sun Prairie High School and remodeling of the existing high school for conversion to an upper middle school. This $101 million project was the largest approved school referendum in state history.

The new high school comprises 410,000 square feet of building space on an 85 acre site and includes a 3-story academic section, a field house, a 1,050 seat performing arts center, a swimming pool, and athletic fields. The building utilizes a geothermal heating and cooling system for energy efficiency.
