BARNES Buildings Receives Building of the Year Award

Boston Sports Institute

Wellesley, MA – The Boston Sports Institute by BARNES Buildings & Management group received Metallic’s 2019 Building of the Year award for the Community/Recreational category. The award focused on the magnitude of the project as well as its recreation features and inclusions.

The project consists of four buildings to house two ice rinks, a field house, a pool and the building entry. Buildings A and B have a DoubleLok Standing Seam roof. Building C has a CFR roof. Building D has a metal deck. Buildings A, B and C have IMP, mixed multi-color vertical and horizontal panels.

The goal was to create clear spans for the ice rinks, pool house, and field house with mezzanines for viewing stands, a running track, and other facility requirements while creating space below for locker rooms, a heated pool, and mechanical rooms. 

This was achieved utilizing multi-span and gable symmetrical buildings and a gable unsymmetrical building with an attached single slope building. Two jack beams were utilized, one to carry framing over the heated pool and the other to carry the framing over the entry between the rinks and the pool and field house.
