The steel structure sports facility was severely damaged by Hurricane Maria on September 17th, 2017. The galvalume roof panels had been blown off and the structural columns and reinforcements were also damaged. The project scope consisted of re-structuring steel columns and purlins, new roof panels and improvements to the concrete base.
The task at hand was to modernize and expand the weightlifting facility. A very popular sport at the Aguadilla campus needed more space and remodeled bathrooms for the athletes. The 800 sq. ft. expansion allowed for new bathrooms and additional storage. The exposed concrete exterior walls and window wall configuration allow for a naturally ventilated gym space.
he University’s Central Administration Office building needed to replace a deteriorated steel emergency stair. As the stairs are located adjacent to the most frequently used entrance to the building, we took the opportunity to replace the stairs with and exposed concrete volume that connects to the language of the existing building. The stairs are encased in tinted concrete shell with openings that act as a new façade to the entrance.
