UPDATED PLANS

We are excited to announce that Baumer Construction, Inc. has been selected as the construction contractor for the Barn 2.0 expansion and we’re proud to share updated blueprints and renderings that they’ve provided. With the donation challenge underway, we aim to start construction in the spring!

EXPANSION PROPOSAL

  • 10,680 Sq Ft Complex Expansion to West Side of Current Gym
  • Replace and Modernize Bleachers in Current Gym To Make ADA Compliant
  • Additional Moveable Bleachers on West Wall To Make Up for the Loss of Seating
  • Home, Visitor + Referee Locker Rooms
  • Additional Equipment + Janitorial Storage Rooms
  • Concession Stand + Public Restrooms
  • Strength Training and Year-Batting Cage in North Mezzanine
  • New Entryway Across from “Ranger” Entrance

** The Barn 2.0 Expansion project is just the beginning. The New Knoxville School Board of Education, The Athletic Boosters, and the School Improvement Committee are committed to additional future facility improvements. Initial research is being conducted to enhance our soccer and track facilities.

What are the Issues?

Bleachers Have to be Replaced

  • The bleachers must be replaced in order to meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design.

We Lack Referee + Visitor Locker Rooms

  • We lack referee and visitor locker rooms. Referees use the teachers’ lounge for Junior High games, which do not include showers, and up to seven referees may share one room during multiple-game nights.

Gym Availability

  • Overall gym availability as well as equipment storage space is an issue.

Falling Behind

  • Our sports facilities have fallen behind other schools, and it’s unfair to our students, our community, and our visitors.
