New DC West Sports Complex Design Development Continues...

We are pleased to announce that the schematic design (pictured above) for the new sports complex has been finalized, marking the beginning of the detailed design phase and project budgeting that will span the next few months. Collaborating closely with users of the facilities, we are committed to ensuring that the design meets requirements and expectations to accommodate our high school teams. The Board has entrusted the construction management to MCL Construction, who will be partnering with BCDM Architects and Rainwood Development to bring this vision to life. Anticipated to commence earthwork this summer, the complex is scheduled for completion in time for Fall sports in 2025, promising an exciting future for our Falcon students, coaches, and community. We extend our gratitude to the Board and community for their unwavering support throughout this transformative project.
