This project features a specialized use of space and architectural use of exterior elevations. The tilt-up portion of this project was the structural feature of the building. It consists of concrete masonry unit (CMU) walls, and new tilt-up panels and existing tilt-up panels retrofit to meet the new athletic center's special requirements.
The foundation consists of caissons with pile caps connected with continuous-grade beams on top to support the new panels and CMU walls. The foundation under the existing walls was strengthened by underpinning existing footings with caissons, pile caps and connecting grade beams. The slab was poured to various elevations to accommodate the different flooring requirements. Panel layout had to be coordinated with the slab elevation changes for casting of the panels. The roof is reinforced concrete over metal deck.
Special care was taken to ensure the roof could drain the rainwater and still have a usable soccer field and running track with artificial turf.
