Historic School Building Gets Fresh Look

Farnsworth Group has completed a comprehensive renovation and expansion of Peoria’s historic Central High School -- one of the oldest K-12 schools in the State of Illinois. This project was completed for both Peoria Public Schools District 150 and the Public Building Commission of Peoria. A central feature of this significant facility upgrade is a new 2-story science wing that encompasses:

  • Six state-of-the-art science classrooms ranging in size from 1,200 to 1,400 square feet each.
  • Three conventional lecture classrooms, each with a full complement of smart technology.
  • An all-new energy-efficient and flexible greenhouse.
  • New restrooms, storage rooms, and other support spaces.
  • A 2-story linear atrium to serve as a new main entrance for the entire school; for both daytime use with the student population and nighttime use with the surrounding Community.
