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 mezzanine loads on second floor. The mezzanine system is supported by masonry wall and does not impose additional loads on columns.
