York Community High School

In one of the most successful Chicago-area school projects in decades, McHugh completed the reconstruction of this award-winning high school more than six months ahead of schedule through strategic design and engineering changes, innovative project management and a close relationship with the client.

While school remained in session, McHugh rebuilt the school in phases over 2-1/2 years, with only the renovated 1920s-era auditorium and tower building, along with a relatively new aquatic center, remaining. The new portions include a 300,000-square-foot, three-story academic building, commons wing with library and athletic wing with 59,000-square-foot field house, fitness center and two gymnasiums.
