Episcopal High School

Centennial Gymnasium

Athletics play a large part in the student’s life at EHS. Aging facilities that lacked areas for today’s athletes to train and progress were lacking, despite the success the School’s athletic teams have achieved. To address this need, EHS took stock of the existing facilities they had, including the venerable Centennial Gym, Flippen Field House, and their wrestling facility, and then sought an approach that would unite and modernize these buildings and add new training oriented facilities. The solution was an infill project that reclaimed under-utilized land that had long been overlooked given the confluence of utilities that passed through the site. APM developed a sports complex that resulted in: two competition gyms, a Hall of Fame that celebrates the school’s great history in sports, modern training rooms, team rooms, locker rooms, fitness facilities, a 6-lane indoor track, as well as additional squash courts, and consolidations of athletic offices into a single facility of nearly 100,000 SF. These projects were done under budget and on time while managing difficult challenges such as utility relocations, support of adjacent foundations, and tying in multiple building levels.

“Episcopal’s trust in APM, at the Administrative and at the Board level is so strong that we do not even consider proceeding on a capital project without them by our side.”
– Mr. Boota de Butts, Chief Financial Officer, Episcopal High School
