Project: Gymnasium and Auditorium Addition
Waverly-Shell Rock is known for their excellence in academics, athletics, and performing arts. Provide additional space to meet the needs for the above. A gym, auditorium, wrestling room, weight room, commons area, and classrooms were built.
The current facilities were lacking the space for both athletics and the arts. Athletes were faced with a lack of gym space. The band, chorus, and drama were lacking an auditorium connected to the high school. Without the additional facilities it created late nights and inconveniences.
About the Solution:
Iowa Direct Equipment provided 10 each basketball backstops, three divider curtains, and one batting cage by Draper. The 1,450 seat performance gym has Irwin Telescopic Bleachers on three sides. The 45’x 90’ wrestling room is padded with Sportsgraphics wall pads. The four practice and one performance volleyball court system is supplied with the Sports Imports volleyball system. Indoor wireless scoreboards are by Fair-Play. A lighted score table and Clarin padded logo chairs complete the gym equipment. The 850 seat auditorium is supplied with the Marquee Chair by Irwin Seating Co. There are 100 tablet arms in the lower section.
Construction began in May of 2006. The gym equipment was completed in May of 2007. The auditorium seats was completed in March of 2008.
