40,000 SF New Construction | 110,000 Interior Renovation
G.M. Hill provided Structural Engineering services for the design of four new buildings. The objective was to provide a facility with a highly efficient and functional layout; an energy efficient building with low operating costs and as durable and maintenance-free as practical to support their needs.
The project scope included designing an approximate 40,000-square foot building consisting of a 2-story Cafeteria building, 1-story Field House, locker rooms and a new Central Energy Plant. The scope of work also included renovating approximately 110,000-square feet of the exterior of the 1928, Circa, 3-story structure. The construction specifications prepared by GM HILL were broken out into two separate bid packages: the first phase of the project was to develop construction documents for the new construction areas; the second phase was to renovate portions of the 3-story building.
The structural design consisted of a combination of load bearing concrete masonry walls, structural steel framing, and steel bar joist supporting concrete slab and non-composite metal deck. The roof structure was designed utilizing steel bar joist, structural steel framing supporting galvanized metal roof deck and modified bitumen roofing.
