W.C. Petty Elementary & Oakland Elementary

Antioch, IL – new additions and remodeling are nearing completion at W.C. Petty and Oakland Elementary Schools of Antioch School District 34. Oakland and Petty added 36,100 sq. ft. and 19,100 sq. ft. of new space, respectively. New lighting in hallways, classrooms, and offices will create a more inviting environment for students, teachers, and staff.

Each site included the building of new gymnasiums constructed using precast walls and incorporating electrical wiring and conduit. During the job, AEC moved and replaced key components of the schools’ electrical service and controls. Despite poor weather hampering the project, during peak periods AEC electricians worked 10-hour days and 6-day weeks to keep the project on track.
