Students and staff are safer and more comfortable this fall as the result of construction projects completed over the summer at two Troy Community School District 30-C schools.
Projects at Troy Crossroads Elementary School were the most substantial. Director of Building and Grounds Tim Wojnarowski said fire-suppression sprinkler systems were installed throughout the school, and fire alarm systems were updated to state-of-the-art panel arrays.
Crossroads also installed several new boiler systems and energy-efficient rooftop HVAC units to maximize performance and keep consistent comfort levels in classrooms. Softer LED lighting was integrated into the school for energy efficiency and a better learning environment, and the division of an art room at the school allowed for the creation of an additional classroom.
At Troy Hofer Elementary School, four new classrooms were constructed from team centers to allow for new students entering the school from boundary redistricting.
Troy softball, aseball and soccer fields were also leveled to improve safety and drainage.
