Clayton Community Center
The center includes a gymnasium, elevated walking track, group fitness room, pottery room, and fine arts room. It also has short-term child care for on-site adult program participants, and an after-school childcare program. The structure is framed with structural steel, light gage steel, masonry and concrete. Masonry walls supported on continuous footings combined with metal stud walls that cantilevered out from the masonry walls and suspended from the roof structure presented a unique challenge. In addition, special wall bracing was required in the gym because the long clearstories left the tops of the walls unbraced.
Clearscapes of Raleigh, NC was the architectural firm on this project.
