Koch Hazard has worked on several projects with the Dakota Valley School District, including the Science Complex and Fitness Center/Stadium Improvements. An innovative new middle school science education complex was designed to increase the curricular focus on science, and create an atmosphere of wonder and a desire to learn and instruct. The Fitness Center Addition and Stadium Improvements was designed to accommodate a growing athletics program. The design goals were centered around the health of students, the development of athletics, and increased community participation. The stadium entrance was designed to improve security and accommodate the increased flow of spectators at football and track events.
