Beard Eaves Memorial Coliseum

Patrick Nelson with Davis Architects
Auburn, Alabama
Completed 2006

The scope of the project was to replace a removable athletic floor with a high end permanent sports floor. The new floor rests on cushioned metal sleepers. Ramps were installed at entrances to the floor to provide ADA access & to resolve the difference in height with the thicker floor. Grade 1 Maple was used for the basketball court playing area while Grade 3 Maple was used for the surrounding field. The border between the two is masked in the painted court surround.
