Funded through a multi-phased Capital Improvement Project, the new gymnasium, fitness center, indoor track, and turf field completely transformed a neglected, undersized facility into a modern $10 million complex.
Overcoming Site Challenges
The design took advantage of a challenging site on a steep hill by constructing the gym floor below grade. The challenge became a benefit when the three-stage scheme was developed to cascade down the hill and capture appropriate functions at every level.
A $10 million gymnasium complex was constructed to allow maximum flexibility for the district’s physical education program, providing a showcase for inter-scholastic athletics – a focal point of this community since 1938. The complex boasts two full-length basketball courts, a suspended running track, and a two-story Conditioning and Fitness Center. All spaces are open to the main gym, allowing multiple activities under the supervision of one coach.
