The 46,000 SF Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig High School is located on tribal lands. For 20 years, the school worked toward replacing their condemned high school. They considered several delivery options, ultimately choosing Design-Build. The high school includes state-of-the-art classrooms, a gymnasium, a full commercial kitchen, a geothermal system, and a tornado shelter. Natural design elements, as well as community cultural elements, are part of the design. The school serves as a community hub and provides a safe, modern learning facility.
