Project list


A new district-wide athletic facility provides a competition pool complex and gym, both with generous spectator areas. The gym is multi-purpose and can be configured for wrestling, basketball, volleyball or other sports. A smaller warm-up pool is available for sporting participants, smaller groups or special need students. Numerous events are planned to be hosted at the facility, including the Special Olympics.


To meet the district’s energy efficiency goals, several strategies were incorporated into the design, including: enthalpy heat recovery wheels, demand control ventilation, and sensor-operated fixtures and faucets. TLC and the architect used Revit to create a 3D model of the building systems, allowing for real-time collaboration and communication.
