Trotwood-Madison Administrative Building

As part of a seven-year rebuilding master plan with five new school buildings, the Trotwood-Madison Middle School was left vacant when the school was relocated to a new site. This 84,000 square foot renovation turned a former middle school into a state of the art office space featuring a large school board meeting room and bus maintenance garage. “The vacant middle school was a very good choice for the administration building,” explained John Smith, Director of Operations for Trotwood Madison City School District. "It was built in the early 70s and was the newest of all the school buildings that were replaced – tearing it down seemed to be a waste."

The first portion of this $2.3 million project was delivered in time for the 2010/2011 school year, including the transformation of the former gymnasium into a bus maintenance garage. Complete with a re-fueling island, there is ample space for the district's 29 buses. There was no interruption in service to the estimated 2,200 students transported per day to district’s nine schools.

The new central office is the hub for the administration and technology departments of the Trotwood-Madison School District. One of the more impressive features of the building is the board meeting room, which contains a floor to ceiling movable glass wall system made by Modernfold©. The panels can be pushed back into wall pockets thus expanding the space of the room for larger events and meetings.

Other features of the project include expanded office space and new heating, cooling and electrical systems. An inviting 120 ft. entrance canopy welcomes visitors to this newly renovated facility – home of the transportation center, technology hub and administrative offices for Trotwood-Madison City School District.


Kapp was very cooperative when working with the schedule. They were excellent at making adjustments when needed to keep the project going with little or no impact to others on the job. Kapp did a great job at taking the lead and it everything was run smoothly.
