Description: 

The Orono Public Schools’ indoor activity center is scheduled to be completed by December 2018.  Plans for the new center include an elevated nine-foot-wide walking track, five multipurpose courts, a track around those courts, a training facility, a weight room, locker rooms, storage and two classroom spaces. The existing game gym at the high school will also get a bit of a boost with an additional set of bleachers.

Since the indoor activity center will be built onto the high school, yet remain open to the public, security was a concern. The public will access the center from an exterior entrance, so they won’t go through the school. There will also be a secure boundary along the common wall with the school that can bar people in the activity center from getting into the school.

More than 40,000 square feet of precast concrete was produced and erected for this project.  Nearly 200 pieces of hollowcore were used for the floor, along with more than 50 pieces of insulated architectural wall panels with an acid etch and waterwash finish.  The architectural sill, wall caps and column caps were provided by Stoneworks Architectural
