Stadium & Athletic Field Improvements




Patrick Henry High School is having a complete overhaul of their Athletic Field. Patrick Henry’s existing dirt track and natural grass field were replaced with an all-weather rubberized track and synthetic turf field that supports football, lacrosse, field hockey, and soccer. Additional improvements included grading and field drainage system.

  • New campus-wide air conditioning
  • Intercom system
  • Electrical upgrades
  • Security lighting
  • A new fire alarm system
  • Americans with Disabilities Act upgrades

Project partners are T.B. Penick & Sons, Inc. and PJHM Architects.

The building design currently exceeds qualifications for the California High Performance School Initiative. LED lighting throughout the entire complex, and the use of local and recycled materials will make it both efficient and environmentally friendly.
