Monticello High School Gym


Special Features

This project consisted of an auxiliary gym addition consisting of SOG, masonry-bearing long span joists, face brick, and metal roofing. The full court gym includes bleachers on one side. This new gym is primarily used for 9th grade activities. There are volleyball inserts in the floor so a net can easily be installed. The new gym addition includes a weight room and wrestling room. New parking was added in the back to accommodate visitors.

The Nielsen Partnership

Joe Werres, project manager for Albemarle County, says, “This was the best project I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve been doing this for years. Nielsen finished two months early. Superintendent Jeff Kestner was so far ahead. Nothing slowed him down. Nielsen had the least number of change orders and RFIs that I’ve ever seen on a job.”
