Wiregrass Ranch Sports Campus of Pasco County
This new facility consisted of a new 100,000 SF PEMB indoor sports arena with 230 foot clear span and 70,000 SF of wood flooring for the primary use of volleyball, basketball, dance, cheerleading, and other indoor sports. The 70,000 SF hardwood floor area is able to accommodate eight (8) full size basketball courts which can convert to sixteen (16) volleyball courts, as well as a dedicated cheerleading and gymnastics area. There is also a multipurpose area, 360 degree viewing mezzanine, fitness center, team meeting and coach’s area, sports medicine office, quick service food and beverage, an event lawn (equivalent to two official soccer fields), maintenance facilities and parking areas.
This project also involved 80 acres of heavy civil improvements to a previously unoccupied property, 12 retention ponds and water, storm, sewer and reclaim infrastructure for the project’s main building as well as future expansion.
Special features included the 230ft span that required three cranes to install, two to hold up the main bents and one to raise the purlins. All the overhead sports equipment is all electrically powered to move up and down independently to any customization of sports events at each gym.
