|MC2 H.S. and Veritas H.S. — Seeds of Health, Inc.|
MC2 High School and Veritas High School are charter schools operated by Seeds of Health, Inc
MC2 High School, with a capacity for 100 students, is the first “blended virtual high school” for 9th-12th grade students in the City of Milwaukee. This charter school combines a balanced program of online curriculum, self-paced work and face-to-face teacher support. As students advance, they earn the privilege to work from home. Space modifications to the 18,000 square-foot, 1900’s-era manufacturing structure—along with the required addition of a fire sprinkler system—were designed and constructed to respect the original character and architecture of the building and surrounding Walker’s Point neighborhood. Berghammer completed the fast-track renovation in six weeks; just in time for teachers and students to start the school year.
A 4,661 square-foot addition to Veritas High School includes three classrooms, a science lab and a new main entrance/lobby. This project was a on a fast track schedule with completion targeted before the start of the new school year. In order to meet this deadline, construction had to start while school was still in session in the Spring. Other special considerations at Veritas were a tightness of the site and short time frame.more > >
