Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Project Owner: Summit School
Designer: WGM Design, Inc.
Project scope included demolition of the old metal gym and construction of a 34,000-square-foot athletic center with basketball court, elevated track, locker rooms, fitness room, and gymnastics room. The primary challenge was guaranteeing the safety of students during class, recess, and after-school activities. Extensive Preconstruction planning mapped safe routes around school buildings and outside play areas.
Challenges of having an adjacent neighborhood and access to very little staging area were overcome through careful planning and coordination of deliveries around the 8:00-3:00 school schedule. The building is LEED® Certified.
