The Elk River School District was in need of athletic space. They needed additional facilities to serve the local areas growing educational, athletic, and recreational programs. A multi-purpose gym needed to serve a wide variety of teaching, practice and competition needs. The needs include basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, golf, softball, baseball, track and other uses by area teams and clubs. Elk River also needed to expand their athletic training facilities to meet the conditioning & training needs of their competitive sports teams.
Anderson Ladd partnered closely with the Elk River High School staff to completely understand their needs and priorities of the new multi-purpose facility. Then Anderson Ladd proposed the ideal solution which included a combination of three high performance sports floor surface to fit the schools needs and priorities and keep the project on budget.
Haldeman-Homme, Inc. Anderson Ladd partnered with Elk River High School, Wold Architects and Stahl Construction on planning and design of Elk River High Schools new Athletic Training Facility & Multi-Purpose Gymnasium Addition. The state-of-the-art facility was completed in January of 2017.
Anderson Ladd provided Robbins Pulastic Classic 90 seamless urethane athletic floor in the new gymnasium addition. The solution offered the widest options for use, playability, and durability while keeping the maintenance and upkeep affordable and easy.
The Pulastic solution also included custom painted game lines and logos color matched to the Elk River School colors. In the Athletic Training Facility, Anderson Ladd provided the super durable Robbins Galaxy Fit high impact 10MM rubber flooring solution.
The Galaxy Fit athletic floor layout included a custom high school logo and power platform inlays that provide flush locations for the weight training powerlift stations. This flooring solution provides impact resistance without the need of secondary wood platforms which can limit other training uses.
The Galaxy Fit solution offers a flat and obstruction free finish in all areas of the training and conditioning space. No more raised platforms to get in the way! Anderson Ladd also included a 15’ x 60’ center athletic turf inlay for field sport training needs.
“Recently, Elk River High School added on 2 gyms and a weight room to our existing high school. Anderson-Ladd provided the flooring in both of the new spaces. They did a remarkable job working with us in selecting the appropriate flooring type, planning and design of these spaces. The personal attention AND attention to detail they provided made the process pretty seamless for us. We are very pleased with the floorings look, wear and durability. They have made followed-up calls to be sure we are satisfied with the finished product. Anderson-Ladd truly cares for their customers from start to finish.
