The Philadelphia 76ers wanted to design a practice facility that would be the most advanced facility in the league which would help them in their efforts to become a premier destination for the best players and executives in the league.
Part of that goal included the look and feel of the facility which supported the premise that player development and commitment would shine throughout this facility - a tall order that needed to be met with the raw material imperative to upholding a sustainable institute. A project of this magnitude demanded an innovative and sustainable design.
Galvanizing was chosen for all exposed areas within the compound parking garage, the sign structure, platform, roof deck, and pedestrian railing, because of its sustainability. Not to be lost in this decision was also the maintenance free benefits of the galvanized coating. The galvanizer successfully galvanized the longest pieces of the project (80 beams) and delivered high, consistent quality.
The fabricators involved knew the galvanizer would handle any expeditious scheduling needs within the project and that was certainly the case. In the end, the steel, concrete, and glass training complex rising along the Camden Waterfront is a refreshing and significant improvement for both the city of Camden and the Sixers fortunes moving forward.
This impressive complex features a 2,800 square foot player locker room, 7,000 square foot roof deck, 40 foot lap pool with a built-in hydraulic platform, a media production studio, two world class basketball courts, and a wellness center that addresses all the players needs on site. All of these improvements are in addition to a 10,000 square foot commercial space, and would not have been made possible without the sustainable contributions of the hot dip galvanizing process.
