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, has created the opportunity to hold sports events practice and competitions.

Technical Details

The building is divided into two sections. The first section 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 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 656x2625 beams oriented flat, while the truss web includes BLC 140x200 compression members and 7 x 459 x 459 tension and diagonal members. This beneficial 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-shape frame provides natural light dimming.

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.
