Glasscock County ISD hired PSC to design a new competition gym as part of several phases of the 2013 Bond Improvement Program. The original gym is approximately 60 years old, and the school needed an upgrade. The new top-notch facility includes a basketball stadium, boys’ and girls’ locker rooms, a concession stand, lit trophy case, hospitality room, athletic training room, weight room, an athletic director’s office and coaches’ offices.

The project began with excavation to recess the stadium. The in-ground gym has 668 seats including a student section tucked into the east side. Bar-style seating offers a convenient place to enjoy concessions while overlooking the court. Beneath the bleachers is a first-class weight room and athletic training facility. Around the corner are the offices of the athletic director and coaches. A window in the coaches’ offices faces the basketball court, a unique feature of the space. A hospitality room painted Bearkat red has a convenient storage room for tables and chairs to set up for school functions and guest entertaining.

The school’s original gym is adjacent to the new facility and will still be utilized for younger grade levels and girls’ athletic practices.
