Heathwood Hall Episcopal School:
Columbia • South Carolina
New, free-standing 23,000 square foot gymnasium facility with a maple gym floor, bleacher type seating capacity for 1,000 people and a high school size regulation basketball court. The Heathwood gym also includes locker rooms, concession facilities, hospitality room and coaches’ offices. The project utilized tilt panel concrete walls with a structural steel internal frame and concrete floor. Due to strict flood zone requirements, this facility was built above ground. While meeting tight budget and time constraints, this building was designed to provide views of the football field and basketball court from a unique donor’s room in the upstairs portion of the facility. An enclosed ramp area is also incorporated into the overall design in lieu of a separate covered ramp. Additionally, the raised structure allows for a covered assembly area for various school activities.
