Coastal Carolina University, Conway, S.C.

Coastal Carolina University is a liberalarts college located in Conway, S.C., close to the Myrtle Beach, S.C. area. The university's Athletic Training Center is a new 61,944-square-foot, three-story facility that abuts one end of the university's football stadium and provides an additional 1,700 seats for fans on an outdoor balcony overlooking the gridiron.

Designers, Stubb, Muldrow and Herin Architects chose a 24-gauge, 16-inch-wide Englert Series 2500 standing seam panel for the 23,900-square-foot roof in Ash Gray from Englert Inc. The designers chose the same color for the soffits around the perimeter of the building's eaves as well as a 7-inch box gutter around the building. All of the coil for the roof, soffits and gutters were supplied by Englert and manufactured and installed on-site by Spann Roofing & Sheet Metal. Actual construction was a joint venture of Mashburn Construction and The Christman Co.

Home of the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, the LEED Gold facility houses a first-floor weight room, showers and locker room and equipment room for the university football team. Classrooms and a cardiovascular area are on the second floor and the top floor houses coaching offices, meeting rooms, a catering kitchen and alumni gathering area. The facilities embrace the athletic department's mission of creating "Champions for Life."
