MCE provided structural design services for the phased renovation of the existing 32,000 square foot University Park Community Center (rededicated as the Charles Jordan Community Center) and new 12,000 square foot manufactured metal gymnasium. The existing building was a single story wood-framed structure that included a 4,000 square foot gymnasium.
Due to a change of occupancy in several portions of the building (plus modifications to the existing structure) a complete lateral and vertical analysis was performed. Additionally non-standard portions of the gym, including design of the support for glazing systems (window supports), were included in the scope of work. In addition, the foundation was part of the structural design. Construction costs for this project were $3,500,000. In the end, MCE provided complete structural plans, including construction services throughout the construction period.
