Ocean County College Theater, Fine Arts and Cultural Center Additions and Renovations

Toms River, NJ


We provided structural services for the design and construction administration of a 12,000 SF Community Pool Facility to house a 6-lane competition pool at Lyndhurst High School.  The pool building measures approximately 100’ by 100’ and includes spectator bleachers, outdoor canopies and an outdoor ADA ramp with site retaining walls. The exterior walls were constructed of brick veneer and glazed CMU with internal insulation. The building features long span steel joists supported by steel beams and columns. The project also involved coordination with the pool consultant and design of holding tanks and equipment pits for the pool systems. The MPP design engineer was responsible for coordinating and recommending a coating system for the structural steel components able to withstand the high humidity and corrosive environment.

MPP’s professionals were responsible for the structural design of this new two-rink, 40,000 SF ice center which included a concession area, lockers, conference and multi-purpose rooms. The building was constructed as a hybrid system consisting of pre-engineered framing and some custom framed areas. The mechanical equipment was supported on a mezzanine located above the locker area. This facility was originally designed as a practice facility for the Philadelphia Flyers.
