El Cajon Valley High School: Building 900

Grossmont Union High School District
Students at El Cajon Valley High are staying fit and having fun, thanks to S+W’s new high-performance Physical Education building. Replacing two buildings determined to be seismically unsafe, Building 900 is a campus infill project, and is ideally located between academic classrooms and sports facilities.

The day-lighted, 23,000 square-foot facility features a small gym to accommodate wrestling, gymnastics and aerobic dance programs. The design includes team rooms, locker rooms, training room and offices for coaching staff to support the needs of an expanding campus. Also welcome are the much-needed amenities provided by Building 900 for the pool area, including restrooms and showers. Last but not least, a new weight training area and physical education classroom are located on the upper level, overlooking the main activity space. 
The new building is scoring big with students. Due to popular demand, the facility has expanded their operating hours to six days a week.
