Getting the whole team together is “the last piece of the puzzle,” Schindewolf said, describing the team as “phenomenal.”
Hammond’s website says he has already built new and renovated facilities for dozens of northeast Ohio school districts, including Ashland City Schools and Green Local.
In business for over 48 years, she specializes in the K-12 construction market.
In the documentation provided, the company has committed to maintaining a consistent and open dialogue with the Triway community throughout the project and to participating in Education Council and community meetings.

Students can influence the design of the Triway building
A two-hour delay in the school schedule on January 14 will allow staff to hear a presentation from the two companies. On the same day, they will meet with representatives of students from all three academic levels, Schindewolf said.
Students will have the opportunity to share their perspective on the design of the building, “from a student’s perspective,” said Schindewolf.

The students had previously given their opinions on the design of the building and at the January meeting, “there are now real things that they can show the students,” he said.
The district is working on a unique opportunity for high school students, many of whom will be chosen for paid internships with GPD, Schindewolf said.
They will be selected according to their future aspirations in the field of architecture or interior design.
Students completing internships will be able to say, “I was part of this project in a much deeper sense,” Schindewolf said. “I really think it will be a great experience for them.”
