Facilities Master Planning

On April 4, 2022, the Gilbert School Board approved CMBA Architects as the district’s master facilities planning firm.

CMBA Architects will work with the Gilbert Community School District to determine the priorities and goals of our current facilities, as well as understand the conditions and utilization of the buildings and the future needs as it applies to our learning environments. Identification of priorities, design solutions, budget options and potential schedules for moving forward are integral to the planning process.

CMBA is a long-standing architecture firm, established in 1963, with more than 50 employees and offices across Iowa and Nebraska. It has a broad reach and the capabilities to serve the Gilbert Community School District.


On Nov. 21, 2022, the Gilbert School Board met with CMBA to discuss the district’s master facilities plan. No decisions have been made, as the board is continuing to narrow the options. The board advised CMBA that it would like to see additional options in the near future.

The board also discussed creating priorities for the project once Gilbert CSD receives enrollment projections from RSP and Associates. The enrollment projections are scheduled to be completed in January.
