New construction of a 21,150sf two-level competition gymnasium that includes a basketball court, weight room, offices and meeting space, a classroom, bathrooms, locker rooms, concession area and storage space.
Build-out of 8,000sf of shell space at McLane Stadium to house a state-of-the-art broadcast studio for all Baylor athletic games being aired on national or regional television networks & streaming services.
The roughly 20-acre site for this project is currently home to the existing South Waco ES facility and adjacent little league baseball fields, which are leased out by the district to Waco Southern Little League. The 60,000sf campus will be expanded to over 90,000sf but adding new administrative office space, an entirely new classroom wing, a new gymnasium, and repurposed space in the existing school once the new addition is completed. Campus renovations and additions will take place over the next two years with phased construction in order to keep the existing campus functioning through the 2023-2024 and 2024-2025 school years. All work is scheduled to be complete in time for the Fall 2025 school year.
This $18M project will enclose open-air walkways around Jr. High & High School campus, add perimeter fencing around the entire campus, add 13 new classrooms while renovating another 15. Other improvements include a new kitchen & cafeteria for the entire campus and upgrading the existing band hall.
