The new Field House at West Shamokin High School in Armstrong School District is positioned prominently alongside the football field, enhancing a full “Friday Night Lights” experience. It provides much-needed space to accommodate a state-of-the-art student fitness center, varsity football locker room, soccer club locker room, coaches’ office, and event box office for this rural school district.
The fitness center incorporates West Shamokin Wolves spirit with large-scale wall graphics, and receives an abundance of natural light through clerestory windows. Locker rooms include writable walls to support interactive game planning and team meetings. The design of the facility employed pre-engineered steel technology to create a durable structure within a condensed construction schedule. The Field House serves as a gateway and event plaza for the existing stadium.
