Otter Creek Elementary School was a competitively bid project for school district U46 and Dahlquist and Lutzow Architects. The two-story, masonry bearing structural steel building was started in June of 2001. It took a dedicated project team to complete the project approximately two months ahead of schedule and under budget.

The complex electrical and low voltage systems along with the heating and ventilation, plumbing and elevator were a few of the trades that took close coordination between all parties to ensure the schedule, quality and costs were staying on track.

The facade was comprised of face brick, curtain wall, and aluminum windows. The building was enclosed before winter, thus allowing work on the interior to proceed through the winter months.

Completed in July 2002, Otter Creek Elementary School has been well received by the students and administration.
