GW Expansion Drawings

Here are the architect's conceptual drawings for the GW expansion. Note that the new gym is not your typical "box," but rather it fits with the design of the rest of this beautiful, historic building. Any comments?

Additional drawings plus an update on all referendum projects are on the District website. Click here.

1) View from Monroe St. (New gym and classrooms are on the far right):

2) View from Washington St.

3) Another view from Washington. New gym and classrooms are at left.

4) View from Godwin Ave. Auditorium is on far left; new gym/classrooms on far right.

Is a roof being added on the old gym?

You are correct that the drawing here certainly does not look like the current roof. I don't recall a redesign of the existing roof in our plans, but I will check and post a follow-up.

The current roof is flat. Not a good thing, they tend to leak. Cheaper to build but not maintain in the long run. Penny wise and pound foolish.
