Russell Ebeid – University Recreation & Training Center
Indoor Training Building with Mezzanine
This is a new university recreation and training center featuring an NCAA regulation size basketball court, volleyball courts, classrooms, offices, locker rooms, concession area, and an open-air two-story lobby.
The project is made up of five buildings, three gable style and two lean-tos. Reinforcements and support beams were added for six suspended basketball goals weighing 1,200 lbs. each and for a hanging gym divider curtain with a weight of 26 lbs. ABC reinforced columns for mezanine loads on second floor. The mezzanine system (not by ABC) is supported by masonry wall and does not impose any additional loads on columns.
