Grundy Center Community School District Gymnasium Addition
Grundy Center, IA

To expand their capacity for recreational activities, Grundy Center Community School District looked to INVISION to help add an addition to their existing gymnasium. The new facility adds a competition volleyball and basketball court, two practice volleyball/basketball courts, multi-sport net (baseball, softball, golf), as well as video/audio integration and retractable seating for 343. Precast insulated panels both fit within the budget and facilitated winter construction, a necessity in the district’s schedule. Translucent glazing allows natural light, and acoustic decking and wall panels enable better sound performance in this multi-functional space.

We met with all the different coaches and staff, to get an understanding of the needs of each.

It was an interesting challenge to then blend those into a design that could serve the various school activities and entire community.
