OLIVE VISTA MIDDLE SCHOOL – New Gymnasium and Multipurpose Building

CSDA provided architectural design services for a new physical education building as well as a new multi-purpose room, lunch pavilion, and student store on an existing campus.

The new physical education building, houses two regulation basketball courts, a volleyball court, a fitness center, a classroom, storage, locker rooms with adjacent offices, a conference room, and storage facilities. The second building houses a new multi-purpose room with a performing arts stage, a lunch pavilion with a full kitchen and indoor and outdoor seating, and an adjacent student store.

Construction was phased to allow the use of the previously existing physical education building. A prominent set of terraced and landscaped steps was constructed to tie in the new physical education building to the existing campus. This also doubles as an outdoor learning space for class gatherings and extracurricular activities. Additionally, we provided infrastructure for Photovoltaic systems on both building roofs, as well as shade structures for the new adjacent parking areas.
