The Chandler governing board approved the construction of a new weight room at Chandler High School on Dec. 4.
The current weight room was originally part of the Chandler Junior High campus, which was built around 1953, according to district documents.
According to the district, the facility was not originally designed and built as a weight room and does not meet current building standards in Chandler. The district will demolish the existing building and build a new facility.
A tent will be rented during construction to temporarily house the weight room, according to officials. The maximum price for this project is $2,139,450, according to the district.
Construction is expected to be complete in July.
