Field House at Middlebury Collegefrom Matt Capone
It was nice to have some good weather for the drive:
The Isokorb® thermal break modules are used to isolate large beam overhangs along the main promenade next to the building.
These particularly large beams required 17 –Isokorb® S22 modules per beam to carry the specified loads, which demonstrates the Isokorb® modules ability to handle very demanding connections while maintaining a thermally efficient connection.
In order to meet the dimensional criteria and to arrange the 17 modules behind the beam end plates, the Neopor-insulation, on the Isokorb® modules had to be cut to a custom fit.
Working with the steel contractor Canatal and their erection team, Schöck was able to simplify the process for ease of installation.
Schöck support collaborated early in design stage with two Boston area firms responsible for the project. Sasaki Associates is responsible for the master panning and design of the building, while LeMessurier Consultants are the engineers of record.
The Field House building will be a stunning addition to the Middlebury Campus and underscores the Universities commitment to building with sustainability in mind.
Congratulations to all involved on progress so far and good luck in getting the project completed on schedule!!
Update July 2014:
Completion is expected Fall of 2014.
