New Madison, Ohio
Garmann Miller initially developed a feasibility study for Tri-Village Local Schools in 2019 to address improving their education and extra-curricular needs. The district was experiencing a growing enrollment and wanted to ensure that their facilities were responding to this growth. In 2021, Tri-Village Local Schools decided to proceed with a vast majority of the feasibility study by commissioning Garmann Miller to design both the Patriot Activity Center (PAC) Building and the Patriot Early Learning Center (PELC) Building Addition.
Garmann Miller, in collaboration with MT Studio, designed a 32,398 square foot building to the east of their existing K-12 school building that would serve as their new varsity gymnasium for hosting volleyball and basketball games, a community wellness center equipped with state-of-the-art weight equipment, and a district office. Ancillary spaces in the building included a large and welcoming lobby, concessions, two locker rooms, multiple coaches and referee changing rooms, an athletic training room, and ample storage space.
Tri-Village Local Schools wanted to create a unique game experience for both players and spectators, and the majority of the Patriot Activity Center was designed and detailed with creative interior enhancements, supergraphics, and multiple video monitors to embrace this request.
The Patriot Activity Center is on-track to be completed and in use by Tri-Village Local Schools in November of 2022, in preparation for their 2022/2023 winter sports schedule.
