WTA Architects was hired to perform an extensive facilities study of all the school district buildings for Bay City Public Schools. The result was a $70 million bond program for the school district.

Additions and renovations included work at the following schools:

  • Central High School

  • Western Junior-Senior High School

  • Handy Middle School

  • Kolb Elementary

  • Linsday Elementary

  • MacGregor Elementary

  • Mackensen Elementary

  • McAlear-Sawden Elementary

  • Washington Elementary


The schools received various upgrades, while Central High School and Handy Middle underwent extensive historic preservation that addressed the entire buildings, system upgrades, and new windows. Ultimately, 40,900 square feet of new space and 990,000 square feet of renovated space was provided to the school district.
