Spencer Public Schools Athletic Center
The multipurpose athletic and classroom facility at Spencer Public Schools K-12 campus in Spencer, Wisconsin, houses a gymnasium, wrestling room, fitness center, and more. It was part of a $5.9 million upgrade that included improvements to the elementary school portion of the existing school. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) paid $2.9 million in improvement grants since the facility is also a shelter-in-place safe room.
The Monolithic Dome is a 170-foot (51.8 m) diameter by 34-foot (10.4 m) tall dome atop a 12-foot (3.7 m) concrete block stem wall. The dome encompasses about 22,700 square feet (2,100 m²). It includes a competition court gymnasium, strength and cardio center, plus multipurpose wrestling room.
Construction began in late 2020 with Airform membrane inflation on January 2, 2021. The school district dedicated the new gymnasium on December 4, 2021.
