Mansfield Public School: Madison New Middle School

Mansfield, Ohio

The new Mansfield Madison Middle School houses grades 5 through 8 and serves up to 1,000 students in the district. Split into two wings, one for fifth and sixth grade students and another for seventh and eighth grade students, the new middle school includes space for three art rooms, two science labs, a modular tech lab, and a distance-learning lab. It also boasts three varsity gyms with retractable bleachers and dividers as well, an auxiliary gym and a hybrid cafeteria/auditorium.

As the general trades contractor for the $36.9 million project, Mosser’s $13.2 million contract included site work piping, grading and pavement, concrete foundation and slabs, masonry, structural steel, drywall, painting, acoustical ceiling, wood flooring, and many other work items that contributed to the state-of-the-art construction of the school.

A LEED Silver Certified project, the building includes many energy-efficient features such as numerous skylights that take advantage of natural daylight, motion-sensitive lighting, and year-round geothermal heating and air conditioning.
