Congratulations to Northeastern Local Schools on the opening of their new Northeastern PK-12 building! On August 20, the District held a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony for the new 175,856 square-foot facility and made its debut to the community. Shook Touchstone will continue to work with the District as the CM at Risk on the Kenton Ridge PK-12 building, which is slated to open for the 2023-2024 school year.
“I want to thank all of the voters in our community who supported the vision of these two new campuses. The opportunities in the new Northeastern building are endless for our kids to grow and we are excited to take this positive momentum and continue progressing forward as a district.” – Dr. John Kronour, NELSD Superintendent
Dayton Builders Exchange Showcase Award Winner
Shook is honored to have received the prestigious Builders Exchange of Dayton (DBX) Showcase Award along with our client and trusted friends at the Dayton Phoenix Group (DPG) for our work to restore their 630,000 SF manufacturing facility. In 2019, DPG took a direct hit from the Memorial Day tornadoes, leaving the facility in shambles. DPG quickly made the decision to rebuild in Dayton and Shook was on site within hours after the tornado to assist with the effort. In the words of the DBX press release, “This project has been a success story for Dayton-Phoenix, the Shook Construction team, and the Dayton area in general. It is a Showcase as to how Dayton supports its business community and an example to other companies looking for a home for their operations and expansions. Dayton has the design, construction, and workforce capabilities to make a project successful as well as provide long-term support.”Learn More About This Project

On August 1, we celebrated the opening of Brecksville-Broadview Heights School District's new PreK-5 elementary school and fieldhouse. This 145,000 SF school consolidates the District's four existing elementary buildings and sits on approximately 55 acres. Unique features are incorporated throughout the building, including a stamped concrete courtyard with a functional pond and boardwalk, an interior corkscrew slide from the second floor to the media center, window alcove seats, and collaboration areas. Hexagonal shapes are also carried throughout the building in the windows and finishes to celebrate the school’s Bee mascot. The 33,000 SF fieldhouse attached to the school is jointly owned by the City Of Brecksville to house athletic tournaments and community events outside of school hours.Learn More About This Project

Shook has built 10 new libraries and renovated two libraries as a part of the Dayton Metro Library’s $187 million “Libraries for a Smarter Future” facilities upgrade program. On June 14, we celebrated the groundbreaking of the program’s capstone project, the Huber Heights Branch. In lieu of shoveling dirt, attendees signed bricks to highlight the prominent feature of the new library and recognize the city's history as “America’s largest community of brick homes”. The new, 27,000-square-foot facility will be DML’s second-largest branch and feature a community room, multiple study areas, conference rooms, and program spaces for children and teens. It has been an honor to partner with DML and the Dayton Design Collaborative over the last seven years on this program to provide greater access to learning and create collaborative spaces for our community.Learn more about the New Library
Journeying to Mozambique, East Africa
Our 2022 Mission Trip is complete! Eight Shook associates recently traveled to Mozambique, East Africa to construct teacher apartments for a remote school.
