Harrisonburg Combined School Gymnasiums
The scope of this project included three gymnasiums constructed using a tilt-up concrete wall panel system. The gymnasiums included a middle school main gym and auxiliary gym and an elementary school gym. This project was the first K-12 school facility constructed in Virginia utilizing tilt-up wall panels.
Using the tilt-up wall method allowed the gyms to be completed in about half the time as compared to a more traditional masonry wall system. As an additional benefit, this method enabled construction to proceed with minimal disruption during the winter months. This process also enabled critical masonry manpower to be available for use on other areas of the 220,000 SF building project.
