Weeping Water Public Education Campus and Wellness Center

The Weeping Water Public Education Campus and Wellness Center project added 68,000 SF and brought all students under one roof. It also included renovation of the existing building to incorporate new energy efficient HVAC for heating and cooling and a new fire sprinkler system. An eight-classroom addition to the northwest corner of the existing elementary school houses Pre-K, kindergarten and additional classrooms. A new handicapped entrance provides access to a fenced playground for younger students.

The east addition (Wellness Center) includes a new competition gymnasium, modern science and Family Consumer Sciences classrooms. The gymnasium houses premier basketball courts and an upper tier walking and jogging track. It also includes new large and modern handicapped accessible athletic locker rooms, a refreshed wrestling room at court level that also doubles as the entire school’s storm shelter. A new weight room and fitness center are also open to the community. The Wellness Center is designed to promote wellness at every age and fitness level within the Weeping Water Community.

The south addition includes the Media and Digital Learning Center, administrative offices and a new secured main entrance. School security, traffic flow for student drop-off points and parking were also improved. The design also anticipates the need for future expansion if necessary.
