Description

‘The new building contains 15,867 square feet of usable floor area. The gymnasium is 70 – 100 feet. It has a gallery along the wide side which will accommodate a large percentage of the student body for viewing the many types of competitive athletic sports and games.

In addition to the gymnasium, the building contains a corrective relaxation room, a large locker room, a room for individual showers, and another for open showers, a kitchen with adjoining classroom, three rooms for toilets, two offices and examination room, and a room for storage of equipment. Consideration was given in the design to reduce to a minimum the operating and maintenance cost and to provide sufficient room for future expansion.

The building is constructed entirely of reinforced concrete, except for the roof over the gymnasium itself, which is spanned by lightweight steel trusses. The exterior of the concrete walls is left exposed with form marks showing… This project was completed in December 1936. The cost of construction was $105,496 and the total cost of the project was $115,493.’
