The new Fremont Ross High School was a collaboration between TDA Architects and Gilbane Construction encompassing 192,000 square feet on the former high school site. This new school, also housing Career Tech students, includes several scopes of work provided by Farnham Equipment Company. FEC provided and installed gymnasium athletic equipment and custom team seating, telescoping bleachers, auditorium seating, casework, and custom millwork throughout the building.
As you enter the new high school, you are greeted by a “WELCOME” sign, fabricated by the custom millwork division of Stevens Industries. The custom reception desk and adjacent complementing signage showcase the custom millwork FEC installed in the new building.
The main gymnasium at Fremont Ross is one of two gymnasiums in the building and features three “Maxam” telescopic banks of bleachers from Hussey Seating Company. The courtside seats were selected in purple colors to match the school colors and collectively seat over 1100 students and spectators. Hussey’s auto-rotating aisle rails for ease of set-up and 1st tier Flex-row Seating Modules to accommodate ADA wheelchair spaces are present on each bank. The school opted for Hussey’s Clarin Portable Team Seating with school logos to match the “Signature Logos” on the bleachers that spell out “ROSS”.
In each gymnasium, FEC installed basketball backstops and wall safety pads from Performance Sports Systems. In the main gymnasium, a roll-up divider curtain was also provided. Those making their way to the locker rooms will find custom wooden locker benches from Hoge Lumber.
Throughout the building, you will see Stevens Advangatge Laminate cabinetry from Stevens Industries. The educational and music casework was installed by FEC with a Natural Ash finish. The science, career-tech, and project lab room casework feature a Salt Creek Maple finish with Black Epoxy Resin countertops.
The new performing art center seats over 700 students with “Quattro” seats from Hussey Seating Company. These seats, with horizontal pleated backs and Grey Lilac Shire fabric, provide great comfort and professionalism to the new auditorium.
The construction of this building put almost the entire scope of FEC’s services on display. The entire building is filled with products that FEC has been known to supply and service for the educational market. Completed in 2021, the new Fremont Ross High School is a showplace for the community and Farnham Equipment Company.
