Kideney Architects had been assisting the Limestone Central School District since 1975 and the Allegany Central School District since 1989. Upon merger in the mid-1990s, the newly formed Allegany-Limestone Central School District retained Kideneys professional educational planning services for a District-wide capital improvement program.
The ten-year, multi-step program began with the development of a facilities analysis and long-range plan of action. A major component of Phase I was the design of the new Allegany-Limestone Middle/High School. The 147,600 square-foot building has a student capacity of over 1,000 and serves as a learning and activity center for the community.
Phase II of Allegany-Limestone's capital improvements involved additions and alterations to several elementary schools. This phase also provided the new Middle/High School with a natatorium, the Districts administrative offices and 14 additional classrooms. The old high school was converted into a community center and office building.
Phase III construction completed the District's capital improvement program. Projects included the design of a new bus garage, major renovations to Allegany Elementary School and the conversion of several Middle/High School classrooms into science labs.
Each project in the ten-year program was strategically planned to maximize State Aid and have a zero impact on local taxes.
