Project Update: St. Mary’s Gymnasium & Fine Arts Building

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Work on St. Mary’s Gymnasium and Fine Arts Center is moving forward.  This week the subcontractors continued to install the rough wiring, mechanical systems, and insulation.  The drywall crew has started to sheetrock the classrooms.  Things are bit dark inside with a roof on, and no light fixtures just yet, but that’s just a normal stage of the project.   It will make for a dramatic difference in another couple of weeks.

Three story masonry building is up and has the metal roof installed.

Ground Breaking Ceremony at St. Mary’s High School

WHEN: Tuesday September 6, 2011, 2:30pm

It was not just another day of school at St. Marys, it was the first day of construction for the new St. Mary’s High School Fine Arts and Athletic Center and Chapel.

Tuesday at 2:30pm, Batzer Construction and St. Mary’s marked the beginning of this important project for the school with a ceremony and the first shovel full of dirt. This is the first new construction at the school in more than a decade.

Fundraising has been ongong for several years for the project. Local architect Brian Westerhout of Ron Grime’s Architecture and Batzer Construction started working with St. Mary’s on budgeting and design for the facilities in 2006. St. Mary’s enrollment has increased from 320 students in 2005 to more than 450 in Fall 2011 — a 40 percent increase. Additional students have led to classrooms expanded beyond capacity, overcrowded athletic facilities with limited practice times, and inadequate room for the fine arts program which includes visual and performing arts, as well as an award-winning choir program.

Improvements to the St. Mary’s campus will include:
* Large gymnasium with separate lockers
* Fitness center for weight training and aerobics
* Special purpose music and art classroom spaces
* Chapel with seating for 80, includes landscaping
* Outdoor amphitheater classroom space

Batzer Construction gave the ceremonial “golden” shovels to Frank Phillips of St. Mary and his team to turn the first spade full of dirt for the project. Batzer Construction will be building on campus throughout the school year and construction is expected to be complete in June 2012.
