When White Pass planned a renovation of their antiquated high school facility, one of upgrades was a new gym floor system in the main gym. Brandsen was one of the contractors that were brought in to play as an MFMA certified sports floor installer in Oregon and Washington.


The main challenge in the design and selection of the gym floor system was that the existing concrete slab was severely out of level. The district was seeking a system that could be installed over the existing substrate to avoid the high cost of removal and replacement of the concrete slab.


Brandsen suggested using a system that could be installed as a custom shimmed sleeper system over uneven surfaces and still give the performance of a premium athletic floor.


White Pass HS now has a new gym floor that is flat and level to manufacturers standards without incurring the added cost and schedule delays had they chosen to perform concrete repairs.
