Wingate Elementary School
Location: Belleville, IL | Owner: Mascoutah CUSD #19 | Architect: FGM Architects, Inc.
The new elementary school consists of four “houses” with connecting hallways. Additionally, the two-story houses feature a brick and stone façade with light stone/dark brick banding and glass storefront curtain walls. Also, the school features classrooms, conference rooms, a two-story media center, computer labs, offices, an occupational/physical therapy, and storage areas.
The center of each house includes an extended learning classroom for students to work on experiments and activities. Furthermore, one house includes a gymnasium, multi-purpose room, stage area, cafeteria, dining faculty and a full-service kitchen. Removable partitions enable these areas to become one large space.
This school construction project featured an extensive site work package including mine mitigation.

Poettker was hired because we felt they were large enough to handle the project yet provide the necessary attention to ensure a smooth project. They delivered on all their promises. The project was on time and in budget. Their involvement from the beginning of the project helped ensure cost savings in value engineering. It was a very smooth project, with a new building of which we are extremely proud.
