Buildings and Grounds

Our Buildings and Grounds Department is staffed with approximately 51 staff positions. Each building has a head engineer that manages the custodians and works with the staff to deal with building maintenance and housekeeping. Several other staff positions include a warehouse, grounds and district-wide maintenance.

The district includes nine school buildings that cover 1,156,875 square feet. The department is totally responsible for all maintenance and housekeeping of the buildings. In addition, custodians handle set-ups for concerts, games, and any special events that occur during the evening and on weekends.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact the Director of Buildings and Grounds John Heltunen at 763.682.8773.

Summer Construction Going Strong

On November 4, 2014 BHM District residents approved a $33 million bond referendum to address the issues of: safety and security; technology; deferred maintenance; building additions; and activity venues. Work began on the list of projects in early May 2015. Construction has been very busy over the summer and will continue throughout the fall. Be sure to scroll to the bottom to find updated albums of each project.
