Elevated Gymnasium Approved at Ferdinand T. Day School

The Alexandria City Council on Saturday unanimously approved the construction of an elevated gymnasium at Ferdinand T. Day School in the West End.

“The gymnasium at Ferdinand T. Day looks cool,” Alexandria City Councilman Canek Aguirre said. “I’m excited to see that move forward.”

Construction of the 55-foot-tall, 8,709-square-foot addition is slated to begin this summer and be completed by spring 2021. The gymnasium would take up 4,762 square feet and also be used for school assemblies. The addition includes office space, storage and restrooms.

Since the initial project was approved in 2016 and amended last year, the addition will be built to achieve LEED Silver instead of adhering to the city’s Net Zero policy, which went into effect on March 2.

According to a city staff report, there will be two points of entry into the gym from the third floor of the school and the gym will be supported by 12 columns in a parking garage.
