NEW ATHLETIC COMPLEX

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.

Conditioning and Fitness Center

A two-story conditioning and fitness center is located off the main gymnasium, maxmizing the space to provide adequate equipment and machines for the district's celebrated athletics program.

New Athletic Fields

The artificial turf grounds feature a six-lane track, lighting, retaining walls and fencing, a press box, bleachers, concession area and restrooms.

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.

Project Scope

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.
