Maynard Jackson Gymnasium Renovation
The gymnasium at Maynard Jackson High School needed to be larger. The problem was that this gymnasium was part of a "green-roof" system where there was liberally tons of soil, concrete and even trees on top of the gym.
Through Winter Construction and Tendon Systems, B&D was brought in to cut the roof into sections small enough to fly out. Meaning, cut, core and rig so that a 200-ton crawler crane could lift the pieces out and lower to the ground.
A precise cut plan had to be developed based on crane capacity and how we would cut through sections of concrete thicker than 30". The post-tension cabled beams had to be de-entergized and also flown out - beams that were 7 feet thick.
