The Client
Webb City School District
Project Type

Paragon Architecture is assisting the Webb City School District in designing and constructing 5 Tornado safe rooms. The safe rooms function as a library, a band department, and three gymnasiums, individually while providing the ability to safely protect the children and the surrounding community from potential disastrous storms. Webb City School District’s focus in this endeavor is for the safety of their students, faculty, and staff and has been even before the Joplin tornado of May 2011. After that storm, the district and the community have a heightened awareness for the need of Safe Rooms. In the event of severe weather, the students have a storm shelter and additionally a functional space that’s utilized every day.
