Multiple wings house a gymnasium, a 1,600 seat auditorium, a 450 seat children’s auditorium, administrative offices, classrooms, and much more. Total square footage exceeds 150,000 square feet.

The structure consists of a variety of construction applications including concrete foundations, a structural steel frame, brick veneer, glass curtain wall, exterior insulation finish system, and an EPDM ballasted roof. There are many special features incorporated in this facility. The acoustically tuned auditorium utilizes a unique under floor ventilation system that reduces mechanical noise. Both the auditorium and children’s auditorium are equipped with a state of the art audio/visual system, theatrical equipment, and lighting with overhead catwalks and control centers. The gymnasium is built to high-school regulation dimensions with a wall and ceiling system that utilizes sound absorption technology. Architectural features include an open atrium area with a food court, inviting well-marked entrances with welcoming centers, and a general layout that reduces the chance of visitors “getting lost”.
