New construction and reconstruction of the schoolhouse in Susten

The school building in Susten was built in the 70s. In view of the increasing number of students, a new building was constructed between August 2019 and November 2021, which includes 7 classrooms, 4 group rooms, 2 offices and a teachers' room.
In order to meet the increasing requirements in terms of ICT infrastructure and to meet all standards in terms of accessibility, the existing school buildings were also renovated. The goal of the renovation was to preserve the character of the school buildings despite the renovation. Therefore, the existing school buildings were optimized with a few localized interventions. For example, individual walls, floors and floor sills were deconstructed and partially rebuilt. In addition, an elevator shaft was constructed. Most of the interior construction work has been completed. Currently, the exterior and the facade of the building are being repaired with concrete. During the summer vacations, the playground will be resurfaced and a new bus stop for the schoolchildren will be built. After completion of the work, the new school building will offer the students a real school home and the teachers an optimal infrastructure.
