The stadium design will feature bleachers on each end of the floor and chair back seating on each side of the gym. It will include a main scoreboard above the middle of the floor and two other scoreboards will be installed on each end of the court. There will also be a running track on the second floor. The gym will have a seating capacity of 2,000.

Brown also presented drawings of the auxiliary gymnasium, theater and turf room.

Colors and finishes for the entire school have not been finalized, Brown noted.

He indicated he would be meeting with staff today to decide on such matters as the mechanical system, technology, and security and communication systems.

“At bid time, we may push it out, depending on what the market does to make sure there is a lot of interest. We’ve been getting a lot of calls on this project. It’s a big project, and there are lot of big contractors looking at it,” Brown said.

“The whole building is broken out into sections rather than traditional classrooms,” said Superintendent Mike Smith. “We’re building a new Career Technology Education Building and a professional level theater. Nobody is doing that these days.”
