LAN was retained by Mamaroneck Union Free School District to renovate the physical education facilities at Mamaroneck High School. The improvements were part of a first vote approved referendum aimed at revamping underutilized spaces to create a multi-functional physical education facility that could meet the demands of the school’s new curriculum.
The new state-of-the-art facility features a multi-purpose physical education classroom equipped with cardio equipment and climbers for individual cardiovascular training, and two rig/rack systems for strength training. Additional spaces include an open studio for a variety of instruction such as spinning, TRX suspension, boxing and yoga. A free movement gymnasium equipped with indoor turf for push pull activities and agility training were designed, and custom traverse climbing walls were installed. Most of the instructional spaces were repurposed from underutilized basement areas that were transformed into open spaces with proper lighting.
Health and safety concerns surrounding the condition of the physical education program and team locker rooms were a major concern. The locker rooms had not been upgraded in over 40 years and did not provide proper mechanical ventilation, showering facilities, or a means to securely store personal student belongings.
The locker rooms were renovated to accommodate a new layout that provides separate spaces for physical education and interscholastic sports teams. The locker rooms feature individual showers, toilet facilities, and finishes that are hygienic and washable.
The new spaces provide the flexibility needed to meet the evolving needs of the physical education program for years to come. The facilities are safer for students and fully accommodate the demands of the district’s interscholastic sports teams.
