CLOVIS HIGH SCHOOL GYMNASIUM ADDITION
EASTERN NEW MEXICO UNIVERSITY - PORTALES, NM
McClain+Yu was chosen to design the renovation and addition to Clovis High School’s Gymnasium. The renovation and addition greatly improves the utility of the "ROCK" Gymnasium Building for the School. From the standpoint of design, the way in which this was achieved is important: as much of the existing building was preserved - no points of entry were changed, no exiting or adjacent grades were affected, no difficult roof tie in points were created, any new structure was minimized by using an existing bearing wall. Finally, existing plumbing paths were reutilized to the extent possible. The result is a new building with a high concentration of plumbing fixtures which is embedded into the context of the "ROCK".
