United States Military Academy at West Point, Foley Athletic Center
As part of the “Margin of Excellence” project, a new indoor athletic training facility became a reality for the United States Military Academy at West Point intercollegiate athletic teams. The new facility was designed to provide cadet-athletes with a top-notch practice center in which to train, particularly during periods of inclement weather.
Butler Heavy Structures teamed with a local Butler builder to provide the design, supply materials, and coordinate the deliveries of the structural steel, roof and wall cladding materials.
The building is a 200'-clearspan with a gambrel shaped roof. The roof slopes are 3:12 and 6:12. The roof is clad with a standing seam metal roof system in a Shell Gray color.
The building walls are clad with a combination of 3"-thick foam core panels, which are also Shell Gray in color, and split face block masonry.
