Oltman Middle School is moving onto 57 acres and into a new building in Cottage Grove. The new Middle School will accommodate as many as 1,100 students when it opens in fall 2018, with the possibility for future expansion to a 1,300 student capacity. The new school will have several features that the old school lacks:

  • An auditorium and lecture hall.
  • A bright, airy lunchroom. The present Oltman lunchroom is in the basement, in a dark and low-ceiling area.
  • A modern swimming pool. The present-day pool at Oltman is not suitable for competition, with only five lanes, no diving well and no room for spectators.
  • Modern classrooms. They will be clustered around common areas, where students will be able to meet with teachers and other students.

Wells Concrete provided 160 precast concrete pieces for the auditorium, fieldhouse, and pool, including roof double tees and insulated wall panels with a combination acid etch, sandblast, and water wash finish.
