Construction completed on new field house for Williams Field High School in Gilbert

Oct 21, 2021, 4:15 AM

PHOENIX — Construction has wrapped up on a new field house for Williams Field High School sports teams, giving coaches and student-athletes at the Gilbert school updated amenities.

“This project is very important for our school and specifically our outdoor sports teams,” Darrell Stangle, athletic director for the school, said in a press release on Wednesday.

“The new field house will provide students and coaches with modern locker rooms and meeting rooms, as well as easier access to restrooms and the training room.”

Other amenities of the field house include a team room, a laundry room, and field and office storage.

Fans are also able to enjoy a new concession stand at the field house.

“Everyone is excited about the new field house,” Cole Norman, a sophomore and player for the high school’s football and baseball teams, said in the release.

“It’s made WFHS more than just a football school as well as a bigger target for great athletes. The future of William’s Field athletics is bright.”

Higley Unified School District financed the project with funds from a $70 million bond program approved by voters in 2013, according to the release. Funding from the program also went to a wide range of capital improvements across the district.

In addition to the field house, Williams Field High School from the bond program funding has received a new football field that was completed in 2014 and additional classrooms that were added to the school in 2017.

Construction management firm and general contractor Adolfson & Peterson Construction demolished an existing concession stand and constructed the 14,524 square-foot field house designed by Orcutt | Winslow, according to the release. The project was awarded to the firm in July of last year with construction beginning two months later.
