  • New Competition Gym
  • Lobby/ Concessions Area
  • Wrestling Room       

Floor Plan (Coming Soon)

Project Description:

With increasing pressure on the use/ scheduling of the existing Healy High School gym, the Pierz Public School District decided to add additional gym space in the District.

Several concept plans were analyzed to determine the best location for the new gym. Options ranged from attaching to the existing elementary school, attachment to the existing high school; to a stand alone new field house concept. 

The planning committee, after reviewing the options, recommended the gym to be added to the existing high school. 

The new high school gym addition included a new entry/event lobby, which incorporated a concession area and toilets. Also, as part of the addition, a new wrestling room, training room and athletic storage were added.

A new stage/ theater area was created out of the existing back end of the existing gym, which gave the district a larger performance stage and theater support areas. The existing undersized stage was remodeled into additional P.E. storage.

Masterplanning for Pierz

MLA Architects have been working with Pierz Schools on a variety of projects over the years and most recently are working on planning on additional Kindergarten classrooms at the Pioneer Elementary School, Music Room  and Fitness addition at the high school.
