We were recently commissioned by St. Jean de Brebeuf Catholic Secondary School and the Hamilton Wentworth Catholic District School Board to design, manufacture and install a custom press box for use at the school this fall.
As with any of our installations in Canada, this project was designed, manufactured and installed all in accordance with the Ontario and National Building Code requirements. The under structure was designed completely of galvanized steel and featured a clear span design allowing for circulation under the building. Access to the press box was provided via stair case access and landings to the ground level as well as a back catwalk allowing access to the exterior doors as well.
The press box itself measured 8’ x 24’ and featured a divided interior space providing three separate rooms for visitors, home and the media. The space inside the press box was completely finished and fully equipped with vinyl flooring, a suspended acoustical ceiling and painted vinyl gypsum board walls.
The unique design of this particular press box project also came equipped with a roof-top filming area, accessible from the inside of the box via a ships ladder, roof hatch and safety guard rails.
This press box is truly a great addition to the football field at St. Jean de Brebeuf, where their sports teams have enjoyed many years of success. Go Braves!
