Jesuit College Preparatory's new three story athletic center is located
on their existing campus in Dallas, Texas. The building structure
consists of three story, tilt-wall, concrete panels, brick accents, and
interior steel frame. To add to the aesthetic, part of the concrete
panels at the front of the building were architecturally finished. The
fenestration includes punched window openings, and glass curtainwall.
Interior improvements include combo restrooms/showers, locker rooms, and
conference rooms on the first and second floors. The third floor boasts
dedicated video rooms, and a state of the art strength training facility
complete with hydrotherapy pools, free weights, and sports medicine
From the beginning, this project was modeled in 3D using DProfiler™
conceptual estimating software, to establish the initial project budget
from early architectural renderings. Several iterations were done with
DProfiler™ to show cost impact from design changes. Having the entire
AEC team local to the area helped to facilitate multiple collaborative
meetings from initial planning, and throughout the project.
This was critical to the success of the project; since the new building
was being constructed on the existing campus all while school was in
session. Also, the North end of the building was designed to open up to
an existing hallway of the school.
At the time of Schematic documents, the design team began building the
building using Autodesk Revit™ to document the construction documents.
Throughout construction, the model was constantly updated with any
changes from the Owner, as well as any clashes that were detected during
project coordination meetings. These meetings occurred on a weekly
basis, and documented through an online project management system used
by all members of the team.
The project was completed in only nine months, thanks in part to the
collaboration of the project team, and the use of several BIM
technologies to communicate information between not only the trades, but
to the Owner as well. As Jesuit continues to make improvements to their
campus, the Athletic Center will function as the central hub of all of
the athletic programs at the school for years to come.
