Kress Events Center Sports Coated-Steel Roof

Construction of the new events center and the remodeling of the existing recreational and sports facilities have been instrumental in revitalizing the school's image, suggests Jeffrey Piette, Kahler Slater's project manager. "We wanted the new center to be an attractive, highly visible addition to the school," he said, "as well as a source of pride for students, faculty, staff and community members seeking expanded opportunities for fitness and recreational activities."

The Phoenix Center, with seating for 1,200, was a run down, four-court gym before the university embarked on the remodeling and expansion initiative. "The existing building was very dated and in need of repair", Piette recalled. "The basketball courts saw extensive use every day and really weren't at a Division I level of quality."
In projecting a new look for the building, home to a broad range of recreational and intramural programs, Piette and his design team focused on the front side of the facility to bring it closer to the campus core and to make it more accessible to the student body.
They also created a dramatic sweeping curved roof for the events center and practice gym in keeping with the building's contemporary lines. Early in the design process, Piette's team considered Everyone agrees that the complex a thermoplastic roof membrane, provides the ideal setting to work but subsequently rejected the material, citing its incompatibility with a contemporary, curved look.
Metal was best choice
"As we looked at our material options, it quickly became apparent that metal would be our best choice," said Piette, who specified about 51,000 square feet of coated-steel, standing-seam roofing. "We learned that each 327-foot-long roof panel could be rolled on easily as one continuous, non-seamed section. More important, we liked the sturdy, clean look of metal-a material we felt would serve the university well for many decades to come."
The Kress Events Center was built against a wall of the old Phoenix Center, which required the architect to specify bricks that would match those in the old building. "We wanted them to blend in so that the two buildings look like they belong together," Piette said.
