Before its 2012 revamp, Hamilton High School’s athletic facilities were in desperate need of an upgrade. The result? A new $12 million athletics complex featuring a new walkway boulevard connecting the athletic center with the stadium, a new synthetic turf field, a resurfaced track and a 3,000-seat arena featuring a hall of fame as students and staff near the entrance.

"The Hamilton High School Arena was driven by the owner's desire that spectators access their seats without walking on the gym floor. Through design investigations, we created the ideal four-sided gym with a running track where spectators access seating from above."
– Todd Thackery, Vice President of Architecture, SHP
"The arena not only features a collegiate main court and two full cross courts, but a structural envelope that would support olympic class volleyball."
