Customer Project

To meet the needs of its citizens, the city of Donzère decided to build a sports hall on a large triangular island, at the foot of the historic village. The new structure, dedicated to local schools and clubs, created the opportunity for sporting event practices and competitions.

Technical Details

The building is divided into two parts. The first part houses the gymnasium while the second includes the fitness studio, dojo ring, and administrative offices.

Two large truss beams with a wooden lattice, also known as mashrabiya style, are placed at the height of the vertical window panels allowing for natural light throughout the gymnasium. The beams include a clear span of 146 ft 12 in over the gymnasium auditorium. The upper and lower truss chords are BLC 25.82x103.34 in beams oriented flat, while the truss web includes BLC 5.51x7.87 in compression members and 

0.27 x 18.07 x 18.07 in tension and diagonal members.
This optimal truss configuration gradually distributes the internal forces with the appropriate stiffness meaning additional stiffness at the supports and reduced stiffness near the mid-span. The diamond-shaped frame allows natural filtration of daylight.

Project Design Engineers and Calculation Tools

The engineering company Arborescence in collaboration with the engineering company CBS-CBT utilized RFEM to analyze the structure and RF-DYNAM Pro to perform the seismic analysis.
