In the spring of 2014, Township High School District 214 developed a capital projects feasibility task force of administrators, educators and community members to develop a three-year capital improvement program in conjunction with updating their Health and Life safety plans. The goal was to maximize their investment and enhance the teaching and learning environment with additions and renovations to their facilities.

The resulting multi-location, multi-year program involves seven schools in the district, including Elk Grove High School, John Hersey High School, Prospect High School, Buffalo Grove High School, Rolling Meadows High School, Wheeling High School and the Forest View facility.

The Pepper team helped develop the overall program by considering logistics, cost and scheduling for each of their individual schools and projects. The entire process was very transparent with the community being involved throughout the progression.

The list below provides an overview of projects completed and planned for the three-year program:


Hersey High School: Two small additions, major library renovation, parking lot/crosswalk work, generator, security vestibules, roofing, tuckpointing
