Value Delivered

Shambaugh was the single-source provider for a corporation-wide renovations project for North Putnam Community School Corporation (North Putnam). Through relocation, reconfiguration, and replacements, we created and delivered an innovative learning environment and improved building functions to help the school corporation reach their goals.

Client Objectives

To update their schools in ways that would better serve the students, parents, faculty, staff, visitors, and taxpayers throughout their community, North Putnam needed corporation-wide renovations. They wanted to enhance all schools within the system which includes one high school, one middle school, and two elementary schools.


Shambaugh self-performed all mechanical, electrical, temperature controls, security, and communications disciplines. Key solutions included:

Relocation and Reconfiguration

  • Administration
  • Media center

Renovation and Remodeling

  • Cafeteria and serving line
  • Classrooms
  • Gymnasium flooring
  • Locker rooms
  • Restrooms (privacy partitions)


  • New fire alarm system, mechanical room control panel, and field devices in school rooms
  • New HVAC systems
  • New intercom system (network cabling and equipment rack)
  • New playground
  • New student lockers throughout Bainbridge Elementary

New Athletic Building

Located at the south end of the high school football field, this new building includes home and visitor locker rooms (large and small versions), spectator restrooms, laundry, trainer room, concessions, and storage.

We also redesigned parking areas to provide enhanced safety for the students and more efficient traffic flow.
