Buffaloe Road Aquatics Center
CALYX provided structural engineering services for this 18,000-SF, steel-framed aquatic center located at the Buffaloe Road Athletic Park. The building includes an indoor recreation pool, locker rooms, offices, a meeting room, and storage space. This LEED Silver certified facility features xeriscaping, catchment ponds, a regenerative media filter, UV filtration, a green roof, eco-friendly lighting and finishes, and uses the excess heat from the dehumidification system for heating and cooling. The structure was designed to meet the various need of the building, addressing long spans, durability, and economics. The building structure is supported with load-bearing, concrete masonry walls.
This project was awarded the Sir Walter Raleigh Award by the City of Raleigh.
