Maple Grove Junior High Gym Expansion - Maple Grove, MN

Site improvements support growing community need for gym space in northwest suburbs.

With growing community involvement, the need for additional gym space was apparent for the Osseo Maple Grove Basketball Association. To construct the additional space, VAA was selected by ATS&R to perform civil engineering including storm water management, drainage, utility coordination, erosion control and grading. The two firms collaborated with the site owners to fully understand their needs and vision for 43,000 SF gym expansion.

Our Approach

VAA designed for a new stormwater system to meet regulatory requirements. This process was complicated by the location of the existing infrastructure. Re-routing the additional storm sewer led to fewer new materials and cost savings for the client.


The final interior space included courts, concessions and open common areas for the gym expansion. VAA was a major player in reconfiguring the parking lot, lacrosse field, tennis courts and utility services. It was rewarding for VAA to be involved with this fast track project that will have multiple community-wide benefits.
