After competing against several local design/build teams, PJ Hoerr was awarded the contract to plan, design and construct this wonderful facility. The project initially started out as a gymnasium and health center, but grew during the planning stage to become a much larger facility with many more facets. PJ Hoerr was involved in the master planning by working with the design team to develop and estimate costs for several optional layouts and site plans.
