The College of Wooster’s main gymnasium needed a new floor. This project came with a unique set of challenges: first, the playing surface was located without access for material to be delivered directly to the job site. Second, the floor needed a special profile so that it would match existing flooring surfaces in the surrounding spaces. Finally, the gym had more than 12 electrical boxes that needed to be inset into the floor and incorporated into the layout.
In order to deliver the flooring materials directly to the job site, we coordinated directly with a crane company to have all of the flooring materials lowered into the gymnasium. This allowed us to install the flooring system in the below-grade playing surface. To match the floor profile so that it matched the surrounding floors, we relied on our experience in constructing subfloors. And finally, when it came to installing the 12 electrical boxes, we were able to make sure the boxes were inset as needed, without compromising the playing space whatsoever.
The PEC Scot Center now boasts a seamlessly incorporated new floor. Its profile matches the surrounding areas, all 12 electrical boxes were installed successfully, and the completed gym is a great source of pride for the college. This 20,940 square foot space features two playing surfaces, including a main court and a side court for practice, all with matching profiles.
