This new 22,000 square foot elevated cast-in-place concrete gymnasium, a hurricane rebuild project, has precast concrete walls and galvanized steel trusses. The peak of the roof rises approximately 70 feet above the ground. The foundation for the structure consists of approximately 471 sixty-foot timber piles with associated concrete pile caps and grade beams. In placing the foundation, the water table was encountered two feet below the existing grade, requiring a wellpoint system to complete the foundation work.
