CJ Building One Ribbon Cutting

Chaminade Julienne High School (CJ) recently celebrated the completion of its $2.5 million renovation of Building One in downtown Dayton. Building improvements included modernized classrooms and hallways, new mechanical and lighting systems, enhanced performing arts rehearsal spaces and a complete renovation of the cafeteria.

After the ribbon cutting ceremony of the Building One improvements, school officials announced its next project: the new Roger Glass Stadium. The $6 million athletic stadium will be the home for soccer, football and lacrosse games. It will feature a 99,600 SF artificial turf playing field, home field grandstands with pressbox, away bleachers, stadium lighting, a support building which includes concessions, restrooms, and storage, two ticket booth gateways, plaza for community events and an 80,600 SF practice field. The 2,150-seat stadium will open in fall 2016.

Leading the construction team on these two projects is Project Manager Suzanne Whisman. Working alongside Suzanne on the Building One project was Project Superintendents Mike Poynter and Jeff Schlarman.  Project Superintendent John Gudorf will be involved in the new stadium project.

Shook Construction has worked with Chaminade Julienne since 2010 on their $20 million initiative as a result of their LIFT (Leading in Faith Today) campaign. These projects have included the new STEMM Center, a renovated gym, installation of the Eagle Tennis Center—the school’s first outdoor competition venue—an interior facelift to two floors in the Marianists’ building and—most recently—the above mentioned renovation of Building One.

Last week’s 8th Annual Fore the Kids Golf Outing raised nearly $35,000 for the University Hospital’s Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. Held at Fowler’s Mill Golf Course in Chesterland, Ohio, the event featured 135 golfers, 42 companies and 13 industry “celebrities” (clients for the local design and construction industry).

This year’s funds bring the aggregate total to $110,000 raised since the event’s inception in 2008. Shook’s own Matthew Danis has chaired this outing since 2010 and has helped drive its significant growth.

Our thanks to all the industry partners that participated in and donated to the golf outing! Without you, this event would not be the success it is.
