School for the Deaf HPER Facility - Little Rock, Arkansas:
Health Education and Recreation Building for the School for the Deaf School replaced the old gymnasium in Parnell Hall and expanded the program to include a college size 94 foot court with seating for 500 spectators. The program provided for a dance studio, and indoor aquatic pool with 6 lanes and training area. Complete locker and bathing facilities served both areas. Public toilets and ticketing office were provided adjacent to the main lobby area.
Four classrooms were included in the program, administrative, storage and support spaces were provided throughout the facility.
I worked on this project with Coach Houston Nutt who was the coach at the Deaf School and a legend in Arkansas and Kentucky basketball and the father of Houston Dale Nutt of University of Arkansas football Coaching fame.
