This unique project combined two of the Westwood Regional School District’s needs into one building. The building was designed as two halves — a maintenance building and a field house. The open space around the building incorporates a new drop-off zone for arriving athletes and a plaza area for team and spectator congregation.
The Maintenance Building side faces the rear of the school and incorporated four double-deep equipment bays with an overhang for landscape equipment. This side also includes the Director of Building and Grounds office, a locker and break room, restrooms, storage rooms, and work rooms. An abundance of natural light is provided into the main garage bay via a translucent panel system.
The Field House side of the building faces the track and field and includes a concession area, restrooms for athletic facility, a team and coaching room, and a secure, temperature-controlled storage facility for High School sports teams’ athletic equipment.
The Selux M60 LED Wet Location was chosen for the canopy of this building. The fixtures need to withstand temperature changes, inclement weather, and provide safe, comfortable lighting levels. The M60 LED Wet Location fixtures are able to meet the challenge, all while keeping bugs and water out with the unique gasketing system.
