New Madison, Ohio
Tri-Village Local Schools wanted to create a unique game experience for players and spectators, so the majority of the Patriot Activity Center (PAC) was designed and detailed with creative interior enhancements, supergraphics and multiple video monitors to honor this request.
In 2019, Garmann Miller conducted a feasibility study for Tri-Village Local Schools that addressed improving their education and extra-curricular needs. The district was experiencing enrollment growth and wanted to ensure its facilities mirrored that growth. The PAC project paused due to the pandemic but picked back up in 2021 when the school board proceeded with most of the feasibility study recommendations and hired GM in collaboration with MT Studio.
The design team enjoyed working with a larger graphics budget and sub vendors to create a unique project. Along with patriotic school branding throughout the building, features such as a film room and glass entry doors to the gymnasium enhanced the project.

first class facilities and resources for our students
Our students continue to excel and rise to the occasion on all fronts at Tri-Village. It is only fitting that we were able to provide first class facilities and resources for our students to continue to accelerate and flourish all while not raising taxes or asking for new money.
The 32,398 square-foot facility sits to the east of the district’s existing K-12 school building and serves as the home for varsity for volleyball and basketball. The Battleground has seating for over 1,700 Patriot fans. The complex also includes a community wellness center with state-of-the-art weight equipment and a district office. Additional spaces in the building include a large and welcoming lobby, concessions, two locker rooms, multiple coaches and referee changing rooms, an athletic training room and storage space.
In the PAC’s inaugural season, the Lady Patriots basketball team finished a perfect 30-0 and were Ohio’s Division IV state champions.
