Construction on District 117’s District-Wide Field House is Well Underway!

The $14.5 million project is slated for completion in the spring of 2021and with no additional tax burden on the community!

The site is taking shape, as shown in these great progress photographs from Gewalt Hamilton’s drone!

The field house is a 70,100-square-foot facility that will accommodate large athletic and academic district events for both Lakes and Antioch high schools. Additionally, it will address space limitations at Lakes, particularly within the Physical Education Department.

“The district is constantly researching with the sole purpose of providing our students with the best possible experiences during and after school,” said Kurt Rowells, Lakes Athletic Director. “The district has been looking into increasing the indoor athletic spaces at Lakes for many years, and a field house not only solves the space issue at Lakes but goes further to provide a competitive and practice space for all programs in District 117.”
