Ripley 2


A custom Star metal building was chosen for its ease of design, clearspan and ease of construction. Conventional construction was used on the exterior walls, with buildings A and C left open up to 10 feet for CMU and brick construction, and building B was left open full height.


A suspended scoreboard and athletic equipment were unusual to this project.
